BIOGRAPHY


 

Terry Winters, primarily known for his painting and drawings, is also renowned as a printmaker. His works invoke networks of modular forms and structures, and employ an instinctive, unruly, symbolic language that is based on botanical, biological and technological sciences. He began making prints in 1983 and since this first group of lithographs, the Morula series, 1983–84, he has experimented with various printmaking processes including etching, screenprinting, linoleum and woodcutting. From a recent series, Dublin 1 and Dublin 2 are controlled within the borders, show impressions from the plate’s edges, and suggest molecular or cellular systems. A grid system is interrupted by organic knot-like forms in Dublin 1, while lines weave to create a structural motif in Dublin 2. In 2009, IMMA presented Signal to Noise, a survey of the past ten years of painting and drawing by Terry Winters, which tracked the painter’s evolving relationship with abstract imagery.

"These new images directly relate to my recent paintings and drawings. I’ve tried to work without  a sense of hierarchy between mediums and printmaking has always been an essential part of  my practice"
