The artist's smarts extend to finding poetry in the technical terms he often employs for titles, such as the 1985 drawing Fate Map, which he defined as "a diagram used in embryology to describe the future of a form," explaining, "I like the idea of projecting a future, graphically." If the future is a place where our progeny will laugh at our present-day superstitions, cruelty, and ignorance, they won't be able to dismiss Winters. Devoid of classicism, he is making our age's classical art.
