Terezia Abraham

I am looking to tell stories of everyday events through temporary, intrinsic details that seem unnecessary, yet inevitable, and very much part of our social experience. Through these stories I wish to unveil the mystical, universal truth that hides behind mundane daily routines. I consider drawing my main discipline due to its accessibility and directness. Drawing mediums have the immediate quality that accelerates communication with the viewer and the ability to record life on paper as a first-hand experience.
My practice is greatly informed by Buddhist teachings, psychoanalysis, folk art and nature. Artistically I consider Paul Klee, Mira Schendel, Gabriel Orozco, Mark Rothko, Marina Abramovich, Joan Eardlely, Charles Avery, Gemma Anderson, Phoebe Bosswell, Eva Hesse and the Hungarian Avant-Garde as my main sources of influence.
