Teresa Poester



My drawings made on paper nowadays are made on printouts of metal etchings that are amplified and, sometimes digitally superposed. The etchings are photographed, reworked, amplified and drawn upon, in a puzzle game with infinite possibilities of superposition and juxtapositions on the wall. The permutations are connected with my interest in mixing languages in the conception and execution of the work and with my experience with mathematics, when drawing would help me to think.

It’s the drawing that helps me redescover the landscape where I was born, in the textures of leaves and in the geomtry of the dry branches of the summer and winter of Eragny-sur-Epte. It is drawing that leads me to film or photograph nature and to take more pleasure in seeing things.
