Utilizing disparate media such as ink\, acrylic\, bleach\, ch arcoal\, metal and gold leafs\, as well as burning tools and techniques\, o n coarse linen\, Teale Hatheway’s compositions are carefully constructed to stimulate the eye of the beholder through balance and imbalance of form\, color\, texture\, surface and chiaroscuro. Her paintings dance when viewed from varied angles and in dramatic light. Strokes of white acrylic leap off of their inky black backgrounds\, revealing a sculptural dimensionality. J udicious use of color makes its presence meaningful while bleached highligh ts carry impact without demanding attention. Fields of gold leaf flash and glisten as if lit from inside and burnt lines of toasted browns retreat int o the neutrality of the linen. The layers of materials push and pull\, floa ting independently of their surrounding elements.

\n

The combined proc esses and materials are only half of the pleasure of painting for Hatheway who is inspired by the metaphysical philosophy (set forth by Gaston Bachela rd in his 1958 Poetics of Space)\, that “Inhabited space transcends geometrical space.” In essence\, private shelter provides security that all ows us to develop our individualism through comfortable access to our expan sive daydreams and in turn\, our inner thoughts and experiences transform t he spirit of built spaces. Alternatively\, Hatheway asserts that exterior s paces must provide\, through their limitlessness and exposure\, a fo rum for expansive connection and community. Hatheway began her paintings as a personal exploration of the city around her and quickly discovered that her passion for architecture and history could be a catalyst for social con nection with and between people in her city.

\n

The key to the success of Hatheway’s paintings is that instead of creating a straight forward pic ture of a building\, she recombines disembodied architectural elements into representations which are familiar but not apparent. These architectonic d ream-scapes are composed of “snap-shots” of memories and are intended to ca pture the soul of the building and incite curiosity in the viewer. The pain tings become puzzles of buildings with the pieces rearranged\, removed and turned upside down - identification of location has become the game. “If I paint a literal picture of a place\, you have no reason to check it out for yourself\, but if I give you some clues and stir your curiosity\, then you might actually seek it.” And those are the results Hatheway cherishes.  A steady stream of commentary flows into her life through her art – stories o f childhood under the bridges\, a morning commute made more insightful\, he art-break on the sidewalk in front of an iconic blue building\, spelunking through the depths of an old movie palace. “It’s pretty poetic\, really\, t hat I could spend all this time alone in the studio\, just trying to make d eeper connections with strangers\,” says Hatheway. “We associate our life e xperiences with our environment so it makes perfect sense to me that our ar chitecture could act as a medium for interpersonal connections.” Teale Hath eway’s architectural portraits have managed to engage viewers into action a nd awareness by making comprehension accessible and meaningful.
