Struan Teague

Struan Teague is an abstract painter and printmaker interested in how visual expression performs within a separate arena to written or spoken language. Working across many mediums, Teague creates a visual language of forms through a balance of compositional structure and intuitive touch.

Teague received his BFA from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee. Recent exhibitions include group shows at Beers London, Fifi Projects, San Pedro and RSA New Contemporaries at the Royal Scottish Academy in Edinburgh. Teague lives and works in Copenhagen, Denmark, and will take part in the 2016/17 Lepsien Art Foundation grant program in Düsseldorf, Germany.

Artist Statement & CV

Working across both large and small scale canvases, screen print editions, and artist books, Teague creates a visual language of forms through a balance of compositional structure and intuitive touch. The resulting works quietly comment upon the modes and systems utilized by working artists and how those methods are relayed to the viewer. Teague's use of instantaneous processes and materials - screen print, spray paint, even dirt and spillage - force quicker and more irrevocable decisions to be made, resulting in intuition taking a crucial role in the image making process. Similarly, cropping, editing, and combining becomes a tantamount action within his practice. While this process involves an element of risk and uncertainty, Teague finds this element of his process the most intuitive, telling, and frequently the most exciting.

In this regard, all aspects of the 'work of art' are considered: including the artist in the studio; the cerebral and often distancing lexicon of art-theory and conceptualist thought; to the actual fundamentals we see before us - where a structured support and the canvas overtop transcend their materiality to become The Work of Art. Teague reminds us that the Artwork is at once an entire picture as well as independent of its parts; the combination and overlap of multiple pictures or images to create new meanings; and the space in which these series of images and artworks are displayed are in continual conversation. In the study of semiotics, these combinations work across independent marks to make meaning. Seen as an operative of Teague's work, the manifold scales, techniques, and even most minute of gestures become as laden with importance as the sweeping, grandiose brush mark. Where quiet gestures withhold and disclose ideas larger than they first may seem.
