"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 paintings which translate systems of information—and the ways we think of them—into pictorial space. His forcefully made works combine physical gestures and cognitive images, which result 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. He is represented by the Matthew Marks Gallery in New York and Los Angeles.

Winifred Johnson Clive Foundation Distinguished Visiting Fellow for Interdisciplinary Painting Practices.
