About Screening

Layered, patterned colours applied in gestural strokes vibrate in horizontal swatches that together float on a luminous blue ground. The foot of the canvas is defined by a strip of light yellow above which the artist has whispered in 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."

She studied music, philosophy and visual arts in Belgium and France. Since 1989, she has built an international career with over 30 solo exhibitions in Germany, France, NY, Canada, Switzerland and Australia. Teichert’s paintings are held in many private, corporate and public collections worldwide.
