Teresa James has long explored spiritual and religious themes. In her art, she lifts the veil that obscures our double existence in the temporal and metaphysical worlds. Everyday people and animals are revealed as agents in the eternal battle of good and evil, their heroic spirits armored or winged. These are portraits of faith.
Over time, she became interested in photogravure and photography. While combining these vintage processes with her drawing, she has embraced new technology using these tools side by side and creating a hybrid print process.
