Terry Winters participated in "Artists' Sketchbooks," Matthew Marks Gallery's inaugural show, in 1991, and since then the gallery has presented ten one-person exhibitions of his work. Over the course of his career Winters has expanded the concerns of abstract art while engaging contemporary concepts of the natural world. A wide range of themes are referenced, from the architecture of biological and living systems to the new spatial orders of data visualization. Throughout his paintings, drawings, and prints a metaphoric sensibility reveals itself in the expressive language of resonant forms and figures.
Winters (born 1949) received a BFA from Pratt Institute, New York, in 1971. He has had solo exhibitions at Tate Gallery, London (1986); the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (1992); Whitechapel Art Gallery, London (1999); the Kunsthalle Basel (2000); The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York (2001); the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin (2009); Staatliche Graphische Sammlung at the Pinakothek der Moderne (2014) and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (2016). Winters lives and works in New York City and Columbia County, New York.
