Portico Capriccio

Sculpture
$ 2,000

DESCRIPTION

Acrylic ink on cotton muslin, stitch-mounted on archival mat board | 2022

Gabrielle Teschner’s latest “Sculptures-That-Are-Flat” explore the significance of the lasting symbols of classical architecture and employ the polychromatic palette of Greco-Roman history. Whether columns or capitals, pedestals or a single stair, the sculptures isolate elements used in the building of larger structures. “Capriccio” or “architectural fantasy” references a style of Italian painting that emerged from renewed interest in Roman ruins in the mid-17th century, incorporating imagined archaeological and architectural juxtapositions.

The works are constructed of individual ink-painted planes of cotton muslin —compositions whose lines are seams, whose shapes are defined by confrontations of color.

“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.”
