Matthew Marks is pleased to announce the exhibition Notes for Color Coding:
Paintings and Monoprints by Terry Winters. This exhibition will be on view at 521 West 21st Street and will also inaugurate the gallery’s newest space, at 526 West 22nd Street.

The exhibition will include six paintings and a suite of nine monoprints, all made in the last year.

For the paintings, Winters has maintained the familiar ratio of standard notebook paper but enlarged the size, making pictures that are nearly five feet tall and painted with bright, saturated pigment. The artist has also introduced a new formal theme to these paintings: on each canvas one can find coiled knot-like forms that, rendered in beautiful, rich colors, take on a floral, sculptural resonance, much like rosettes in architectural bas-relief.

To produce the monoprints, Winters first made nine different laser-cut blocks. He then inked each block in a unique fashion, exploring different color combinations.

Notes for Color Coding: Painting and Monoprints by Terry Winters will be on view at the Matthew Marks Gallery at 526 West 22nd Street and 521 West 21st Street (between 10th and 11th Avenues) through December 24, 2005.
22nd Street Hours: Tuesday through Saturday, from 11:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M.
21st Street Hours: Thursday/Friday, 1:00 to 6:00 P.M. Saturday, 11:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M.
