Teale Hatheway is a Los Angeles based artist known for her paintings and installations of architecture, street lights and ornamental details. Her work contemplates ideas of memory, experience and the soulful residue left behind as people inhabit, use and pass-through physical spaces. Hatheway uses the visual languages of the built environment, color and pattern to suggest the depth and complexity of the life of the city. Her paintings entice viewers to unplug and tune into the tangible history surrounding them.
Hatheway’s work possesses a formal beauty which she integrates with joyful color and abstraction. In addition to paint, pencil, ink, spray-paint, bleach and gold leaf, Hatheway experiments with a range of painting grounds, selected for their material qualities such as texture, translucence and reflectiveness.
