Terry Winters

Terry Winters participated in "Artists' Sketchbooks," Matthew Marks Gallery's inaugural show, in 1991, and since then the gallery has presented numerous 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.

Born in 1949, Winters received his BFA from Pratt Institute, New York, in 1971. His work has been the subject of exhibitions at institutions including the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (1992); the 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); the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (2016); and The Drawing Center, New York (2018). Winters lives and works in New York City and Columbia County, New York.
