In a career spanning decades, Terry Winters has created complex abstract paintings inspired and informed by sources such as mathematical concepts, botanical shapes and patterns, biological processes, and information technology. His recent Patterns in a Chromatic Field works take their title from a 1981 piece by 20th century composer Morton Feldman (who composed music inspired by Philip Guston and the Rothko Chapel). These vibrantly colored paintings feature organic patterns that merge, dissolve, and shift in space, and they explore the strange and potent territory at the intersection of abstraction and representation. Winters has had solo exhibitions at Tate Gallery, London; Whitney Museum, New York; Whitechapel Art Gallery, London; Kunsthalle Basel; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; and Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin. His work is included in numerous public collections, including MoMA, New York; Museum of Contemporary Art, London; MoCA, Los Angeles; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; Whitney Museum, New York; Tate Gallery, London; and Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, among others.
