Terry Winters is an American painter whose work reintroduced figuration into painting in way that was consonant with the Modernist legacy.

His paintings from the 1980s have their antecedents in the work of Arshile Gorky and the early biomorphic pictures of Mark Rothko and Barnett Newman. And the scarred, fuliginous, tactile grounds  which find their inspiration in the monochrome canvases of Brice Marden, one the artist’s greatest influences.

By the mid-nineties, Winters’ work would assume an altogether different tenor. Grids and tesselated patterns of colored shapes began to enter into his paintings. There was also a gradual transition from the landscape or figures in or on a field format in the organic paintings to the all-over composition of works. He is also a highly regarded draftsman and printmaker, which have been the subjects of their own exhibitions.

His work has been the subject of numerous exhibitions, including two retrospectives at the Whitney Museum, and is in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis.
