Teresa McCue is a New England-based painter. Her paintings pay homage to the spirituality she finds in nature. Imagery is intentionally simplified. Emphasis is given to the emotional impact of color. Often her paintings evoke something ethereal: a landscape or seascape with a dreamlike quality. She works in two mediums, pastel and acrylic. The lush, velvety texture of pastel lends itself to an empyrean, atmospheric effect. Acrylics, with many textural additives available, provide an exponential opportunity for creative exploration. Moving back and forth between these mediums keeps her creatively charged as each body of work informs the other.
