In this body of work, Gabrielle Teschner returns to Key West, drawing on both the language of wood joinery and the extensive palette of a lush tropical landscape. Gabrielle meditates on the act of being “away” or “at home”, how the absence or presence of a ground suggests a fluctuating scale for the architectural elements found in her stitched works.
“I imagine that when I am home, I have a fixed shape and proportion in regard to my surroundings, and when I am away my scale fluctuates in relation to the place. I am seeking my shape, navigating my edges.”
