Port Hope, Ontario based artist, Alice Teichert, has exhibited her works extensively in Canada, and Internationally since the early 1980’s. Her lyric and exuberant multi-media works celebrate a fusion of visual elements, letters and the written word, and musical notations.
“Growing up with a musician mother, I first learned to read notations of dots placed within five lines and understood that each dot had its significance according to position. I also saw musical notes running up and down in curves and arabesques. Raised in a multi-lingual environment of the European Communities, I learned to think of language in a highly visual way…..”
Further: “In my painting practice, I transpose this idea of expression into an evolving visual language. Words, letters and scores become expressive and fluid, lyrical and philosophical through gestural drawings interspersed with script-like lines, shapes and forms within layers of vibrant glazes.” -Alice Teichert
