The grand scale of Metamorphosis Duo has a magnified cellular quality - as though they are strands of DNA recombing and bringing forth new life. The primary colours used here re-inforce the elemental nature of this painting's proposition. 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.
