Teresa Waterman

b. 1952

Hidden in plain sight, my work is a conceptual point of departure for accidental beauty. Drawing from nature’s elements without vanity, twigs, roots, fallen leaves melting snow, and atmosphere, small differences magnify in my mind into delicate simplicities.

For me, absorbing nature is a way of reaching the ungraspable; the imperfect and mundane emerge with a magical aspect. By immersing myself in the intricacy and depth of what is overlooked, my memory and experiences are informed. Visually catching something only once opens a pathway for working in series. I freely mx mediums hinting at what we see and what is everywhere changing.

The work slips between painting and drawing. I think of my work as floating sentences in nature isolating its most physical presence, a glimpse, a glance, an awareness of what is momentary; fading hints of what we see- reminding us how rare it is, what we remember.
