Whitespace is pleased to announce the representation of Teresa Bramlett Reeves and exhibition of her first solo show, Channeling Joan Fontaine. The exhibition runs May 19th – June 24th, 2017.
Based off of the 1940 Alfred Hitchcock movie, Rebecca (adapted from a Daphne du Maurier novel of the same name), Reeves’s body of work visualizes the competitiveness, interdependence, and inadequacy that is so central to the narrative of the film. It is accompanied by a short video, which provides clues to understanding the psychological intentions invested in the simple, abstracted forms of the paintings. The movie was also one of Reeves’s mother’s favorites, and the two bonded over their admiration for the film.
Teresa Reeves was born in Athens, Georgia. She received her BFA in drawing and painting from the University of Georgia, her MFA in drawing and painting from Virginia Commonwealth University, and her PhD in art history from the University of Georgia. She was recently awarded a Fulbright U.S. Scholar grant to work with the Irish Museum of Modern Art in Dublin. In addition to her studio practice, Reeves has worked for many years as a curator and teacher at various locations inside and outside of Atlanta.
