Anonymous figures traverse otherworldly caves and grottoes. Purples, oranges and greens meld in layered liquid montages. London-based artist Esther Teichmann’s works slip between autobiography and fiction, featuring characters that dream within mythic realms.
The works are on display in On Sleeping and Drowning at Flowers Gallery, London. Plunging audiences into dark and sensuous environments, the exhibition revels in the power of storytelling to evoke narratives of loss and desire.
Cloaked in dripping inks and bathed in subtle colours, the subjects appear out of reach, lost within faraway stories. References to water are significant: seaweed, swamps and coral feature heavily in Teichmann’s allegorical dreamscapes.
Inside the space, painted backdrops, moving images, sound and objects transform the gallery into a multidisciplinary arena. Imaginary landscapes to come to life, taking viewers on a deeply revelatory journey.
The exhibition runs until 22 June. Find out more here.
