About Evanescence

An eye-catching acidic green transforms into a deep blue beneath the turbulent gray and black energy field. Through the centre of the field are interwoven lyrical lines that come from before and lead somewhere else - this paining is a part of something larger than itself. We are implored to follow the line to find out. Working with a new medium and a new palette, Teichert is communicating with us more subtly than ever before: her line, while viscerally present, offers itself as an absence - a fissure between forms; a crack where the light breaks though. Soft rays of white pigment filter out from the pulsing line and lead our eyes into fields of colour that are so fresh and so deep that you may have gotten lost in them were it not for the circular and oblong 'pauses' of solid colour points that bop through the paintings strategically like a metronome with its own agenda, leading your eye from place to place, drawing you in and out.
