About Teale Hatheway

Teale Hatheway is a Los Angeles-based artist exploring the intersection of observation, recollection and architecture. Her mixed media paintings explore the theory that environments are remembered as compilations of elements with which we develop emotional or intellectual connections. She extracts details (such as pattern, color, form and texture) from the urban environment and utilizes them to trigger recognition of place. The results are layered, fragmented representations which convey the way we frame, archive, and recall our physical surroundings.

Hatheway is self-taught in the practice of architectonic drawing, as well as in many of the techniques and materials she employs in her mixed-media paintings. She has worked as an artist, muralist, sculptor and scenic painter, as well as a stage, lighting, production and interior designer. Her commercial work has provided Hatheway the room to play with a great scale of dimensions as well as afforded her the opportunity to study the translation of three dimensional spaces into two dimensional ideas and vice versa.

InTentCity, Hatheway's installation commission for the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, is a collection of 53 hand painted tipis. For the artist, the development of two dimensional patterns into three dimensional forms to create an immersive environment, was a rewarding inversion of her painting practice. The collection of tipis reflects the artist's interest in multi-cultural and interdisciplinary design and architecture, and resulted in a cohesive yet diverse installation.

Hatheway approaches the practice of art in an investigative, experimental and research-minded way. A fourth generation Angeleno and an advocate of historic preservation, she finds Los Angeles to be an ideal source of subject matter for her paintings. Its history often being dismissed for its future, Hatheway hopes to bring attention to Los Angeles architecture by demonstrating to viewers their often unrealized, but always personal experiences of a city on the cusp of understanding its historical significance.

Teale Hatheway is an internationally exhibited and collected artist. She earned her BA from Scripps College in Claremont, California, where, along with an education in contemporary art practice, she developed a love of western sociology and history. Hatheway studied figurative painting at the Slade School of Fine Arts, University College London. While abroad, she began her personal studies of architecture and urban planning. Upon graduation, Hatheway was awarded for her extensive library featuring readings on spatial theory, architecture, stage design, photography, art, urban planning and the philosophy of the effect of structures on the human condition. She acquired additional knowledge through studies of photography and architecture at Art Center College of Design, Pasadena.
