Terry Winters (American, b. 1949)


Terry Winters is a prominent abstract late-Modern artist who has had major retrospectives at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York and the Metropolitan Museum of Art New York. He is represented in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York; The Art Institute of Chicago; the National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC; the Whitney and the Met. He received his Bachelor in Fine Arts from Pratt University in 1971. Winters’ work visually represents complex informational systems and the ways we conceive of them. Beginning with botanically inspired imagery, Winters continued to investigate artistic connections to biological and scientific processes, mathematics, and information technologies. His pieces combine a gestural physicality with symbolic language to form abstract modernist figurative imagery.
