This exhibition will showcase a collection of Will Teather’s often uncanny paintings from recent years alongside the latest developments in his current project, “Infinite Perspectives.”
“Infinite perspectives” is a project that explores new ground in the depiction of space, blurring the boundaries between painting and sculpture. These are three-dimensional paintings on globes and unusually formed canvases.
The paintings employ an innovative type of inverted perspective, that gives a 360 degree view of a space – with both the perspective and the representation slyly shifting, depending on which point you look at them.
“The origins of this work lie in magical realism. A lot of my work deals the carnival-esque and a sense of the uncanny. It’s about creating extraordinary visual spectacles through painting. It’s about the relationship between the 2D and the 3D, and about creating something closer to the way we see. As a lecturer in drawing, I am also interested in contributing to our journey through art history to the present day, and see perspective as a fundamental part of that journey.”
