HOLD MY BODY . HOLD MY BREATH
Sit for a moment and think. The thought isn’t all quite clear, the thought isn’t all quite formed, it’s evolving. That thought turns into an emotion and that emotion turns into a shape. That’s what I see when I look at Teresa Vick’s work. Her images make me move, they make me wind my eyes through the entire image – left to right, up and down and I’m taken on a nostalgic ride through the image. I don’t understand the image fully, but I feel like that’s the point. It’s supposed to leave you feeling unfinished, still pondering, still wondering what the image represents. And that mastery of mystery is exactly what makes Teresa Vick’s art something worthy of being selected as a finalist for our #dpmagfaves Showcase Gallery.
