Brad Teodoruk draws inspiration everywhere: from pop culture, through current affairs and conversations with friends, to antique bird watching guides and poetry. Like a prism in reverse, these influences confer through the artist and focus into a single artwork, with floating phrases and disjointed images merging into visual poetry.
Omission is a theme that is included throughout most of Teodoruk’s practice, the layering creating a hidden history within the work. The juxtaposition of flat and impasto surfaces tells as much of a story as the images scattered across the canvas. In his most recent works, Teodoruk has gotten looser with his brush, giving the canvas over to shape, composition and colour.
