Gabrielle Teschner lives and works in Richmond, VA. She received a BFA in Sculpture from Virginia Commonwealth University and an MFA in Sculpture in the San Francisco Bay Area from California College of the Arts. Her artwork is in collections nationally and internationally including the De Young Museum in San
Francisco, Facebook HQ in Menlo Park, Google San Francisco, the Ritz Carlton Washington D.C., Goodtime Hotel Miami, Soho House Istanbul and Soho House Malibu.
Teschner’s flat sculptures are composed of stitched, individually painted planes. She uses the symbolic language of architectural forms and natural forces to demonstrate the expressive power of spatial relationships.
“I destroyed the block to make way for space. The guiding way of being is reduced to rubble. The forms of time and fact are open to change. Stay the course of finding new ways of thinking nothing. “
