In Formation : On the Philosophy and Art of Alice Teichert (Hardcover) (Dagmar Taube)
About this item
Contemporary artist Alice Teichert’s paintings are known for their holographic depth and unique luminosity, for their visual poetry and multifaceted proximity to music. Using ever-surprising combinations of lines, shapes, and color, she unfolds new realms that, once the viewer moves beyond trying to decipher them, and simply looks, slowly begin to reveal themselves. This is the first full-length book covering her work, presenting paintings from throughout her career in which viewers can trace her inspirations—including old masters and illuminated books and manuscripts from the medieval era—even as those influences are utterly transfigured by Teichert’s creativity and skill. Born in Paris, she lives and works today in Port Hope, Ontario.
