Statement:

Teresa Narduzzo has been a London based artist since completing her BA Fine Art Hons Degree at Winchester School of Art in 1984. In 1987 she took her MA in Fine Art Painting at Chelsea School of Art and was also awarded the Boise Scholarship. Since that time Teresa has exhibited in mixed and solo shows in London and Europe where her work is in both corporate and private collections.

Over the last twenty years or more, this artist has developed her own language of mark-making and application: Bold brush strokes displaying energy, power and freedom contrast with thick expressive slabs of palette-knifed paint. Heavily painted surfaces sit alongside scraped back areas which reveal the history of a piece. Delicate linear elements and scratched-in lines emphasise the scale and power of their surroundings while also at times refer to written or spoken dialogue. Abstraction in this form is a representation of the intangible experience, the gut response and in their actual making, with their interaction of colour, form, stroke, line, energy, these pieces create their own drama, perpetuating that which they also represent. Tension is omnipresent in this work and is the structure upon which this language hangs, against which it battles and alongside which it finds a place of ease.
