Teresa Schippel Hales

As an artist I take inspiration from nature; the interplay of sunlight, the formation of shadows and silhouettes, reflections in water; from puddles to the sea. And the sky; clouds, dramatic and threatening or light and insubstantial, creating a unique and limitless visual theatre. Other work takes inspiration from functional manmade objects; beauty in the mundane: padlocks, keys, tools, bikes, tables & chairs. Not solely attracted by their forms and textures, I am also drawn to the relationship between positive & negative, by their compositional qualities.

My time is split between the Working Men’s College etching studio, East London Printmakers and my home studio. My fascination lies in the many and various processes and the tactile, visceral qualities involved in etching and printing, from the relative simplicity of a linocut or screen-print created at the kitchen table, to more technical methods requiring more specialised materials and equipment.
