ARTIST INFO

Teague’s paintings take their cue from current affairs - particularly events that affect the wellbeing of the planet, such as bush fires, rainforest destruction, poaching and climate-change-denying politicians. She is equally interested by the dissemination of information in the digital era; how it affects the way we interpret and handle crisis events. She asks whether armchair activism is a dangerously false economy or better than no activism at all. 
 
Teague currently lives and works in Portugal.
