About the exhibition

Teresa’s work involves, painting, installation and prints.

She is currently looking at the philosophy of impermanence.


‘For the love of land, sea and sky’

Globally, politically, environmentally, economically, ‘disruption and change’ seems to describe our lives.

Our once safe and secure existence has become precarious and fragile.

Certainty has become uncertain.

Nothing is static.

All is impermanence.

As in a deep fog, solid appears liquid. So much about our existence, that we were once sure of, is now precarious and fragile.

We think of this.

Each day learning more.

Even water, that dictates everything, is running out – as we misuse it.

My work is an effort to capture the fleetingness and fragility of life.

But it also reflects the joy of the earth’s surface. The land sea and sky we see around us.
