William Teather Biography
British artist Will Teather graduated from Central St Martins College of Art and Design in 2003, and currently lives and works in Norfolk. Teather originally made his name by exhibiting regularly in London with the art collective Project 142. His work has since been featured in venues including Gallery No 9 in Marciac and ‘“The Cork Street Open Exhibition,” a juried exhibition of contemporary fine art in Mayfair. More recent years have seen Teather's work featured in over 100 international exhibitions. Teather came to wider public attention in spring 2007 when he was selected from world-wide applications to spearhead the new Artist-in-Residence programme at Aberdeen Arts Centre. The artist's two month residency in Scotland was a high-profile public event which met with substantial interest and acclaim at a local and national level. The narrative concepts which underpin his current series were nurtured whilst in Aberdeen through visits to The Elphinstone Institute, meeting local author Stanley Robertson and being shown around HM Theatre's archives by Edi Swan, in addition to watching the Arts Centre's own dance and theatre programme. Teather has lectured on drawing courses at Leeds College of Art & Design and more recently Norwich University College of the Arts. In July he received a College Staff Award, in recognition of his contribution to the College’s Drawing Workshop. From January 2009, he began a new post as Artist-in-Residence for Anteros Arts Centre in Bergh Apton, Norfolk, which was followed by an artist's residency in New York in 2012.

Will Teather: Another Orient / Infinite Perspectives

OCT 17TH- NOVEMBER 17TH 2014 - SOLO EXHIBITION OF OVER 20 RECENT PAINTINGS AT THE ANTEROS ARTS FOUNDATION, NORWICH, UK www.anteros.co.uk

10am-5pm Monday-Saturday

Exhibition Reception: Saturday 18 October, 4-7 pm

A display of recent work by Will Teather, "Purveyor of the extraordinary." This is a promise which could easily have been lifted from the walls of the Yarmouth Hippodrome, where Mr Teather has taken much inspiration for many of these new paintings. In his recent artworks, Teather both investigates and enters into a dialogue with what has been called 'Orientalism'. He draws parallels between the themes within the Western notion of the 'Orient' and the 'Carnivalesque,' both of which the artist describes as "unknowable spaces that exist as much in the Western imagination as any physical space."

Also, expect to see at least one finished prototype from his new series of infinite perspective paintings, painted on spheres.

Artist's Statement:
Sephaville – Project StatementMy intention is to introduce a series of characters, locations and motifs that create a self-contained narrative. The unfolding fables will fully exploit their visual format, providing a universal language that lies beyond the shackles of text. For example, one image may contain a foreground formation of figures that resembles a flock of birds hidden in the background of another one, thus indicating a sense of some underlying order within the world being created. Birds, nudes, harlequins, ballet dancers and night-lit cityscapes have already featured during our journey through Sephaville. My residency at Aberdeen Arts Centre, Scotland, over summer 2007 helped to nurture these ideas. I was lucky enough to meet the folklore storyteller Stanley Robertson at The Elphinstone Institute, and to explore His Majesty’s Theatre archives with the author and archivist Edi Swan, as well as seeing the art centre’s own theatre and dance programme. The city itself was also an inspiration. Although Aberdeen is in fact coastal, the neo-classic and gothic architecture that towers over the cosmopolitan population does little to suggest this to the uninitiated, rendering the oversized and over-fed herring gulls that fly between these buildings an unusual spectacle. This appealed to my interest in magical-realist literature and films such as Pans Labyrnith, Sleepy Hollow, The Shining, Perfume and The Cremaster Cycle.
