Sculpture / Textile / Painting
b. Newport News, VA | Lives and works in Richmond, VA
Teschner frames her hand-painted, sewn textile works as sculptures, as she works with muslin fabric, paint and stitching to reconstruct forms that are analogous to our built environments. Her work can be seen in various Soho Houses, The Good Time Hotel (Miami), Elle, Coveteur, AnOther Magazine and The Good Trade.
“All of this for me, all of the references to architecture and math and humidity, are a way to talk about being in the world. An affirmation of existence or the inability to do so.”
“My 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 my work echoes my conceptual interest in dismantling logic-structures in order to introduce new interpretations. My attraction to using fabric has to do with its portability and flexibility. Constructing forms from this material has natural limitations that I use to explore and reveal the concept of accumulating knowledge.”
