Gabrielle Teschner

Bay Area artist Gabrielle Teschner works with muslin fabric, paint, and stitching to reconstruct forms that are analogous to our built environments. Employing architectural components into her carefully crafted works, Teschner questions and explores the edifice of accumulated knowledge, incorporating architectural icons that become themes for an examination of structural authority in both building construction and rigid ideologies.

Teschner lives and works in the San Francisco Bay Area. She received her BFA in Sculpture from Virginia Commonwealth University and her MFA from California College of the Arts.

Artist Statement & CV

Teschner's formal aim is to disassemble the planes of common three-dimensional forms so that, when reassembled, their edges and lines form uncommon and irrational intersections. The process of cutting, painting and reconstructing material in her work echoes her conceptual interest in dismantling logic-structures in order to introduce new interpretations. Her attraction to using fabric has to do with its portability and flexibility. Constructing forms from this material has natural limitations that she uses to explore and reveal the concept of accumulating knowledge.
