Sitter in 1 portrait
Painter and teacher. Wynter studied at the Slade, and was co-founder of Crypt Group, St Ives, which became the Penwith Society of Arts. He began his career as a landscape painter in a neo-romantic vein but turned to abstraction in the late 1950s. In 1962 he began making constructions he called IMOOS (Images Moving Out Onto Space), consisting of contrasting pairs of painted shapes, hung in front of a parabolic mirror leaving them to rotate freely.
