Clint and Jessica recently caught up with Teresa Oaxaca at her studio, following the Grand Tour of Europe that she took late last year. Teresa served us a wonderful tea, in the most amazing and eclectic spread of fine teacups and teapots.
Among many other things, we discussed her collections of dolls, nutcrackers, and masks– all of which are important inspiration for Teresa, and props for her magnificent paintings.
Teresa also showed us some of her student works from her days at the Angel Academy in Florence, as well as new work in progress.
Lately, Teresa has been experimenting with thick impasto application of paint. She shared her techniques with us, and showed us some of the house paint brushes, as well as more traditional brushes she has worked with. You can read more about her explorations in impasto painting at her blog.
Teresa will be exhibiting with Principle Gallery in our Spring Still Life Invitational next week. We are very excited to feature her, as well as many of our other talented artists! Please come show your support, and stop by to say “Hi” at our opening night of the exhibition- Friday April 12th. We’ll be here from 6:30 until 9:00 p.m.
Many more images of Teresa’s work can be found at Principle Gallery’s website linked here.
And if you’d like to read more about Teresa’s process in her own words, please visit her blog.
