Exhibition: Terry Winters 'Facts and Fictions'
A leading figure in the art world for four decades, Terry Winters became well-known in the 1980s for his materially-conscious drawings, prints and paintings. Mobilizing the patterns and schema that undergird physical and intellectual life, Winters has developed his own pictorial language wherein grids, networks, and knots describe complex encounters between biological drives, technological systems, and mental processes. From the beginning, drawing has been a pivotal part of Winters’s production, serving as kind of testing ground for formal geneses and spatial encounters that may or may not take root in his paintings and prints.

Organized by The Drawing Center, NY, this exhibition presents an overview of Winters’s drawings from 1980 to the present, the first such exhibition in the US. It includes a selection of large-scale works on paper as well as a wide span of smaller drawings and a suite of rarely seen notebook pages. Unlike typical retrospectives, this presentation is organized with an eye to morphological relationships so that, as viewers move through the exhibition, they will recall and ideally return to earlier related images that themselves appear to mutate and change upon being revisited. In this way, the show foregrounds the overarching theme of Winters’s practice: the impulse to make sense, however fictively, of the manner in which the visible world is constructed and received.

Organized by Claire Gilman, Chief Curator, The Drawing Center, New York.

An exhibition catalogue will be available.

Exhibition: Xylor Jane "Counterclockwise"
Xylor Jane’s hypnotic paintings are rooted in mathematical concepts, numerology, and love. Devotional portraits of gridded Arabic numerals hold personal significance to the artist but are intended to spark a spell-like visceral experience for the viewer. The subjects include complextetradic primes, Fibonacci sequences, and Magic Squares. The colors emerge from a seven-hue system that holds space for our curiosity, despair,
and aspiration.

Xylor Jane is a Greenfield, MA-based painter, represented by CANADA Gallery, New York.
