About the Work
Layered, patterned colours applied in gestural strokes vibrate in two horizontal swatches that float on a cool, luminous blue and gold ground. The foot of the canvas is defined by a strip of light yellow-orange above which the artist has inscribed black calligraphic dashes. These marks are an invented, glyphic language that is echoed in the pattern of gestural strokes throughout the painting. Teichert refers to this as visual poetry: "The notation of language has always held more fascination for me than the verbal or auditory expression of it. Reading and absorbing the images of many manuscripts, sheets of music or pages of scripted writing throughout my life, has always led me to that curious space between perception and interpretation.' 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.
