Terence Teo draws inspiration from his experience of nature in all the richness of the seasons. His paintings are a record and representation of his observations and experiences of the natural environment that surrounds him. Through his work, he attempts to bring across the play of luminosity and reflection using techniques that he has developed over the years. In his early conservative landscape works, one can notice his strong lines and mastery of positive and negative space. His Rain Forest Series shows off Teo’s confident layering technique and his ability to push boundaries of traditional landscape painting. Romance of Shangri-la, among other series produced on Teo’s frequent travels for inspiration represents his constant endeavours to present the beauty of his experiences as paintings. Flow of Nature, the latest series of works, is a culmination of the development of his artistic techniques and philosophy thus far. The paintings evoke a sense of movement and dynamism in the environment we encounter. His unique creations have received compliments from art lovers.
