DESCRIPTION

Acrylic ink on muslin, triptych

Cut, painted, constructed and sewn, Teschner calls the works on fabric “Sculpture That is Flat”. They are ways of working and thinking through ideas of three-dimensionality and the spatial concerns of sculpture and architecture. The works are on a flat plane, which allows her to address a single perspective of that form and to consider our associations to these archetypes.

"This piece is based on Francis Bacon's triptych "Three Studies of Lucian Freud", which sold for a record $142 million the day before I made it," explains Teschner. "I thought it was interesting, the heightened value. Because I'd been making cubes daily, his line drawing of cages really caught me. It became an opportunity for me to explore a cube with transparent sides."

The cube and the block are shapes that the artist returns to because they represent essential forms for the building of greater structures.

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.
