About Present

Layers of yellow-gold and sea green acrylic articulated with dynamic calligraphic taches unfold across this 4.5 feet long canvas like an illuminated scroll. The foot of the canvas is defined by black and white glyphic script that hints at a more deliberate communication.

The artist refers to these markings 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.
