Michelle Teear

Michelle Teear is a contemporary painter working in egg tempera using classical paint making techniques. Her practice is researched based, regularly travelling, and living in remote regions as an immersive experience. During her travels she conducts en plein air studies and sources found natural pigments from which to make natural paint. Her works draw from a deep desire to connect with the natural landscape. To Michelle the landscape presents a way of gaining perspective on ourselves: ‘I'm interested in finding spaces where we can engage with our human scale. To feel vulnerable in the context of time, the charge of the landscape and our own inadequacies. To engage with a sense of my own mortality in contrast to the enduring nature of the landscape.' – Michelle Teear 2023
