Press Release

The Tibor de Nagy Gallery is pleased to present a select group of Trevor Winkfield's paintings from the past decade. The show is presented In conjunction with "Town and Country," which runs simultaneously at Tibor De Nagy and is curated by Mr. Winkfield.

Trevor Winkfield moved to New York from his native England in 1969. The artist combines in his paintings strikingly absurdist and unpredictable juxtapositions of disparate images, all rendered in a flat graphic style. His paintings often hint at narratives, although they can also be read as carefully constructed abstractions with recognizable objects worked in the compositions.

Winkfield's work has been the subject of over fifteen solo exhibitions throughout the United States. He has received numerous awards, including a Pollock-Krasner Award and a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship. In 2002, Winkfield was awarded the Chevalier dans l'Ordre des Artes et des Lettres by the French government. The artist has written extensively about art and until this year was a co-editor of The Sienese Shredder, a journal on art and literature.
