From the exhibits catalogue - Augusto Cabrita Gallery
Teresa Ribeiro's artistic work is the product of a deep research and a permanent quest in finding the leading line of all her art to discover in her abstraction, her most remarkable expression of her creative process. The Spirit and Substance exhibit presented in the Agusto Cabrita Gallery is an example of such taste for the abstract, reinforced by the use of warm colours where the ochres prevail.
Teresa Ribeiro is a bearer of a peculiar way of painting, using collages over canvas to expand the artistic composition and, therefore, break apart all the elements to, later on though colour and texture, unify the whole pictorial space. In this way, we reach a particular interpretation and a peculiar way to understand the universe that surrounds her. Bearer of a feminine sensitivity found in the unity of the opposites (spirit and Substance), the whole meaning of her work. It's impossible to feel indifferent to Teresa Ribeiro's art due to the empathy she establishes with the viewer, who has the privilege to connect with her works, filled with magic and seduction.
