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, and Louisa Chase, to name a few). In the
1970s, these artists rejected the strict reductionism of Minimalism and returned to
figurative compositions. Winters’s vigorous style combines physical gestures and
psychologically loaded images, resulting in paintings that are rich in ambiguity and
allusion. Winters recently presented a survey exhibition at the Irish Museum of
Modern Art, Dublin.
