For over thirty years now, the painter and draftsman Terry Winters (born in New York in 1949) has been one of the most inventive and productive printmakers of his generation. From the start, the imagination of this peintre-graveur has revolved around spaces and systems beyond the visible. In all of the media of which he is master, Winters has conducted an unbroken search for a metaphysics of hidden forces and energies whose forms transcend the creative process. The specific challenge represented by printmaking for Winters is due to the close relationship between the demands inherent to the medium, and to the unexpected liberties it again and again offers. It is not only the close interaction between drawing and painting that enriches Winters' art, but that between painting and printmaking, both of which - for decades - have equally inspired his work to a degree that the artist can justifiably speak of a "cross-breeding" between the genres.
Winters' postulate, "invent, test, and play, " advanced years ago to describe his intentions as a draftsman, applies perfectly to his approach to printmaking as well. Compared with the practice of the classical painter-engraver, Winters derives his metamorphoses not from the process of reworking plates or producing a series of state impressions. Instead, he relies on a playful testing of mechanisms that render scales and patterns ambivalent and generate new imagery which keeps associations as open-ended as possible. Just this medium, in concert with drawing and painting, has permitted him to translate highly diverse codes into new, sensuous contexts through complex processes of transfer and printing, leading to an essential archetype and abstraction.
Following the Munich exhibition of Terry Winters' drawings in 2003, the current exhibition of 150 works presents a survey of his output as a printmaker since 1999. The works are also documented in a catalogue raisonné (with an essay by Michael Semff and detailed descriptions of the works by Elisabeth Finch of Colby College Museum of Art, Waterville, Maine, published by Prestel Verlag, New York). The exhibition is presented in close cooperation with Colby College Museum of Art, Waterville, Maine.
After Munich, it will be shown at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Humlebæk in 2015. Born in Brooklyn, NY, in 1949, Terry Winters attended the High School of Art & Design in New York and continued formal art training at the Pratt Institute, receiving a BFA in 1971. His early paintings are influenced by minimalist, monochromatic paintings, like those of Brice Marden. Winters has a love of drawing which led him to introduce schematic references to astronomical, biological and architectural structures as the subject matter of his paintings.
He began exhibiting his work in 1977, and by the early 1980's his ideas had developed into loose grids of organic shapes beside lushly painted fields. His first solo-exhibition in New York, in 1982, was at the Sonnabend Gallery; subsequently, he was included in the Whitney Biennials of 1985, 1987 and 1995. Additionally, he held a one-man show at the Tate Gallery in London; his work has exhibited at the Corcoran Gallery of Art as well as with many international museums and galleries. Bill Goldston invited Winters to print at the Universal Limited Art Editions studio in 1982.Winters' work at ULAE has become increasingly complex, combining elements of drawing with painting. The artist lives and works in New York and Geneva, Switzerland. This item is in the category "Art\Art Prints".
