Charleston Ballet exhibiting Michael Teel

August 7, 2019

We will be showing Michael Teel who is the winner of Best of Show at the 2019 Tamarack Best of West Virginia Juried Show.

Artist Statement: "My interests lie in exploring social themes related to the day-to-day struggles of living in Appalachia. Creating visual stories based on history and events I've encountered or have experienced. This region is very unique, with it's friendly people and it's oppressive poverty both co-existing. Our environment will dictate how we live, so building these narratives into my work, allows me to explore those concepts. Drawing upon my past experience as a graphic designer, I follow the creed of “Less is More” in my paintings. How to convey a mood or compose a scene with as little detail as possible. I want to suggest, and let the viewer see what they want out of the image."
