Teresa Waterman’s artwork is a conceptual point of departure for accidental beauty. Drawing from nature's elements without vanity, twigs, roots, fallen leaves, melting snow, and atmospheres, small differences are magnified into delicate simplicities. Absorbing nature is a way of reaching the ungraspable; the imperfect and mundane emerge with a magical aspect. By immersion in the intricacy and depth of what is overlooked, memory and experiences are informed. Waterman views her work as floating sentences in nature, isolating its most physical presence, a glimpse, a glance, an awareness of what is momentary. Fading hints of what we see remind us how rare it is and what we should remember.

Teresa Waterman received a BA in Fine Arts from Skidmore College and a Masters in Interior Architecture from Pratt Institute. She began her professional architectural career at Gensler and Associates. Interest in environments led her to develop a rich fine art portfolio in painting, drawing, and photography. Waterman has participated in many solo and group exhibitions throughout the northeast and internationally including Practices in Sculpture at The New School of the Arts (New York, NY), Project Wall a solo exhibition at the National Academy of Design (New York, NY), and CASA MENZO in Torino, Italy. Waterman has taught at Skidmore College, The Learning to Look Program, and The Whitney Museum of American Art and has served as a portfolio reviewer for New York State Council on The Arts.
