About this Edition

Since 1982, printmaking has become an essential process in Terry Winters' artistic practice.

The artist has spent nearly four decades exploring a range of print techniques, many of which often relate to his paintings and drawings.

Terry Winters completed a new lithograph at ULAE entitled Red Stone. It was printed using both offset and transfer lithographic presses. It marks the final print in a planned series of four dedicated to the CMYK color model (Cyan,Magenta,Yellow,Black) which defines printmaking.

The project began with one of the largest lithographic stones in ULAE’s inventory, measuring over 46 x 34 inches. This large stone was the artist’s initial inspiration for the entire Stone series. The stone was used in each edition -- Blue Stone, Yellow Stone, Black Stone, and Red Stone -- and was ground down and individually redrawn every time.

About the Artist

B. 1949 Terry Winters attended the High School of Art and Design in New York, and received a BFA from the Pratt Institute (1971). His early paintings were influenced by the monochromatic approaches of minimalism. However, Winters' love of drawing and his growing interest in depiction led him to introduce schematic references to biological, astronomical, or architectural structures as the subject of his paintings. By the early 1980s, these had developed into loose grids of organic shapes against lushly painted fields.

Winters' first one-person exhibition in New York was at Sonnabend Gallery (1982); he was subsequently included in the Whitney Museum of American Art's Biennial Exhibition (1985, 1987, and 1995) and the Corcoran Gallery of Art's 40th Biennial Exhibition of Contemporary American Painting (1987). Survey exhibitions of his art have been organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Contemporary Art (1991), the Whitney Museum of American Art (1991), and the Whitechapel. Bill Goldston invited Winters to print at ULAE in 1982. As Winters has continued to work at ULAE, his prints have become increasingly complex, offering a solution between drawing and painting.
