The new year brings new and exciting art exhibitions at The Under Ground Theatre.
And the 2014 programme starts with the professional and highly-talented Teresa Currie who will be displaying her work from January 10 to February 1.
Teresa works with a range of mediums including water colour, pen and wash, soft pastel, graphite, charcoal, photography, painting on wood and print making.
A selection of her work will be available to view and purchase, at the exhibition.
Through Teresa’s work it is evident she believes in the creative use of colour to enhance both painting and composition.
Teresa’s favourite artists and those that she draws inspiration from are Ana Mendieta, Cornelia Parker, Piero della Francesca, Andrea Mantegna, Friedrich and Gerhard Richter.
Originally from Surrey, Teresa studied art and design at Croydon College and became a technical illustrator.
She went on to obtain an Open University Art History and Classics First Class Honours degree, and a PGCE teaching qualification in art and design.
She has been teaching art independently for the last three years. Currently, Teresa teaches two local art classes and is a regular visiting tutor and demonstrator to art groups in Sussex and Surrey.
Teresa’s vast art history knowledge, experience, willingness to try out new things and ability to learn while teaching others have brought both depths to her work and inspired her to experiment with different media and subject matters.
