Teil Duncan is one of Redux’s new studio artists. Tonight she will have her first solo exhibition at the Costa & Williams Dental Health Care office on James Island (325 Folly Road, Suite 310). There will be an opening reception this evening from 5-8pm where drinks and hor d’oeuvres will be served.
We interviewed Teil today. Here’s what she had to say:
Describe your current show/work. The show consists of a group of twenty paintings of figurative, still life and architectural subjects in various sizes.
What inspires you? I am inspired by light. The subjects of my paintings vary, but I ultimately chose what I paint according to the lighting that is cast—with great lighting comes more colors.
Who are your favorite artists? Off the top of my head, I am drawn to Ray Turner for his brushwork; Brian Rutenburg for his texture and composition; Simon Birch for the motion that he captures; and Susie Pryor for her painterly style.
Describe your ideal day. It would start with a large cup of coffee! Then, I’d stroll over to my studio at Redux to get a little painting in. Next—off to the beach for a bike ride and attempt to surf. Later that afternoon, I would go crabbing and shrimping and end my day with a big low-country boil.
If you’re not painting, you are….doing yoga, walking on the beach or strolling through downtown—checking out local art.
Favorite quote? Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life. —Confucius
Favorite song/musician? Lana Del Rey
Future goals? To become a successful artist where I would have the freedom to donate my paintings for the benefit of others without seeing the income. Also, to become a decent surfer!
