by Anton Dolders, Regional Chair of Arts at Macmillan
Teresa Bullen is a native of the area who attended Southport Art College in 1979 and continued her education by studying Fine Art in Preston. She worked as a learning support officer teaching all aspects of art from drawing and painting to three dimensional media including ceramics and textiles to people with learning difficulties at an adult education centre in London for ten years. Teresa has expressed relief at returning to her home area because of the open spaces it provides especially along the coast which she finds them extremely inspirational in the creation of work portraying nature and interaction with the environment.
Teresa is one of the most versatile artists I have encountered and this quality is clearly present in the way she combines two dimensional imagery created through painting and photography with natural and manmade objects which she uses to enhance her compositions. Much of her work depicts unification with landscapes upon which she sculpts and crafts elaborations stemming from them eg, by connecting fallen branches, scraping through ground debris and positioning seeds. Her work also succeeds as manifestations of colour coordination as she administers subtle changes through application of complimentary tones from which her variety of objects are comprised and yet there are on occasions great contrasts involved.
Teresa’s work is currently on display at Cambridge Walks Gallery and also in the Sefton Groups and Societies Exhibition which opens at The Atkinson on Saturday 28th November. For full details regarding Art For Macmillan Cancer Support’s exhibitions and events, look at our website:
