About the Work
In this serigraph on paper, layers of lemon yellow, moss green and dove grey provide an illuminated ground on which calligraphic gestures and directional lines in reds, black, orange, and various blues, like instructions or a musical score, signal the meaning of the work. This invented, glyphic language and the title of the print, Hum, hints at a lively, lighthearted communication. This print is number 8 in a series of 34. It is part of a larger eight piece series titled "The Test is Still Unwritten No. 8". Teichert studied music, philosophy, visual poetry, visual arts and printmaking in Belgium and France. Since 1989, she has built an international career with over 30 solo exhibitions in France, NY, Canada, Switzerland and Australia. Teichert’s paintings are held in many public, corporate and private collections worldwide.
