Terry Winters is an American abstract artist whose paintings in the 1980s depicted natural forms and botanical studies. In an interview from 2008 he described his early work: "For me, painting's capacity to make images through the manipulation of materials seems to be its most powerful and magical quality. How a painting is built is a big part what it means. Mark-making, gesture and touch-those are the key components as to how to generate images through painting."
