Although Winters works from biological illustrations, he prefers not to reveal his specific sources. He wants his prints, like his paintings, to conjure a range of associations, deliberately creating images 'where meanings are open-ended'. Like his paintings, his prints combine allusive natural and organic forms into complex abstract imagery. Field Notes (2) and (4) suggest a range of natural forms from cellular or crystalline structures to embryology.
