After a long career in drawing and painting, Brazilian artist Teresa Poester recently devoted herself to experimental research merging different languages and supports. For the first time in Paris, she shows her particular technique combining photography, drawing, engraving and video.
Teresa Poester work starts with drawing and later is embedded in photography. Her photos mimic her drawings, not the other way around. Teresa first creates drawings, more as an abstract process, which later she takes out of her studio and investigates nature’s textures that resonate with her initial designs and pencil strokes. She complements her drawings with her photos, merging both. Her body of work becomes a harmonious and balanced composition of abstract and figurative, of photography, painting and drawing.
Curated by Lassla Esquivel & Beatriz Forti
