"When painting, I’m being pulled along like those strange attractors in chaos theory. The work makes demands and I respond until the work has a life of its own and feels somehow complete." –Terry Winters, The Paris Review

Terry Winters is widely regarded for layered, biomorphic abstractions that evolved from his early Minimalist work developed alongside fellow New Image painters (Susan Rothenberg, Elizabeth Murray, Louisa Chase, and Katherine Porter, to name a few). In the 1970s, these artists rejected the strict reductionism of Minimalism and returned to figurative compositions. Like Murray and Rothenberg, in particular, Winters developed a vigorous style that combines physical gestures and psychologically loaded images, resulting in paintings that are rich in ambiguity and allusion.

Winters recently presented a survey of his work at the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin; and has staged international solo exhibitions at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Whitechapel Gallery, London; Kunsthalle Basel, Germany; Tate Gallery, London; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; and the Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich, Germany; among others. Winters is currently based in New York City and Columbia County, New York.
