Big Party Plaid, French BlueRegular price $ 195.00
An update to one of the most classic and timeless patterns around - plaid. These simple, elegant brushstrokes are strong enough to stand alone, but also make the perfect partner for numerous patterns in my collection.
Each pattern in the Teresa Roche textile collection begins as an original painting inspired by a moment, a place or a memory. She has a passion for creative spaces…not necessarily glamorous or luxurious spaces, but those that are personal, interesting and a reflection of the people who live there.

"We are products of our past memories and current environments. My work can be seen as a fusion between the past and present, the inspiration often coming when traveling. As I explore a new place, my attention focuses on mundane, everyday details which will often trigger something from my past. For instance, I have an enduring childhood memory of laundry hanging from clotheslines in the backyards of my mother and grandmother. When in Italy, the memory of that was so clear as I saw the clothes hanging from balconies - it was a different interpretation but I think it resonated so strongly because of that memory. I began to see line in a new way and it has become very prominent in my work.
In excavating memories among the minutiae of life, I am seeking to unearth something old, worn, perhaps forgotten. I add layers of paint, sometimes dry, sometimes not, and gradually scrape away. Markings and lines are revealed and the paintings become something vibrant, saturated with color and graphic line. I see much of my work as a rebirth and renewal- the final paintings reflect a clean, new version of a preserved memory that I lifted form the ashes, resulting in a delicate tension between the dark, graphic lines revealed against the simplicity of a bright new surface."
Teresa lives in Greenville with her husband, Will and their German Shepherd, Sky, just a few steps from her gallery Art & Light.
