Opening Reception: All of My Ideas
San Antonio artist Jeremiah Teutsch is a man of many talents and very little time. When not working as the matting and framing technician at the McNay Art Museum, he spends his spare time as a painter, sculptor, political illustrator and caricaturist, chalk artist, set-designer, musician, sound designer, puppet-maker, prop maker, courtroom sketch artist, writer, art teacher, sign painter, and occasional tinkerer.
Teutsch does not consider himself a prolific artist-- in fact, if you do own a Teutsch work, you should consider yourself lucky-- but he does have a plethora of ideas. As a colleague and friend of the artist, I have witnessed the germination of his ideas into the most extraordinary art objects and inventions. There is an abundance of dialogue on the artistic process, and it is no secret that a work of art may take many forms before it is finished.
This show focuses on Teutsch's «ideas,» a collection of objects spanning the last fifteen years. The artist frequently refers to said objects as «drawings,» «doodles,» «sketches,» and «scribbles;» quite frankly, they are works of art unto themselves.
Please join Revenant Gallery for an opening reception on Saturday, January 13th. All ideas will be available for purchase or destruction.
For further insight into Teutsch's artistic process in his own words, please view his presentation from Pecha Kucha Vol. 23 (2016) at the Charline McCombs Empire Theatre:
