Matthew Marks is pleased to announce Terry Winters: Works and Days, the next exhibition in his gallery at 7818 Santa Monica Boulevard. The exhibition features seven new paintings on paper made in the past year.

Winters’s work reflects an expansive vision for the potential of abstract painting by incorporating contemporary concepts of the natural world. His range of themes includes mathematical diagrams, musical notation, the architecture of living systems, and new orders of data visualization. Winters’s continuous experimentation with different subject matter and materials yields paintings of remarkable richness and brilliance.

The new paintings on paper each fill a large sheet from edge to edge. The flatness of their support transmits both the immediacy of the artist’s markings and the imaginary spaces of their content; the works remain enigmatic in their beauty and full of associative meaning. The artist has said: “I want the painting process to be direct and diagrammatic—straightforward and factual gestures that open a wide imaginative territory. It has something to do with animation and some desire to construct images as necessary fictions with an emotional life.”

Terry Winters (b. 1949) lives and works in New York City and Columbia County, NY. His work has been the subject of one-person exhibitions at museums across the United States and Europe, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Kunsthaus Graz in Austria, the Irish Museum of Modern Art in Dublin, Kunsthalle Basel, the Whitechapel Gallery in London, and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York.

Terry Winters: Works and Days is on view at 7818 Santa Monica Boulevard from October 16 to December 23, Tuesday through Saturday, from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM. For additional information, please contact Jacqueline Tran at 323-654-1830 or jacqueline@matthewmarks.com.
