galerie OPEN by Alexandra Rockelmann is pleased to announce the most recent work by Jeffrey Teuton in the solo show My Sauvignon Blanc isn’t cold enough: and other things I have yelled for attention. Teuton lives and works in New York.  His conceptual paintings are a manifestation of his notebooks that fill up with the ideas, eras, words, stories and myths that he collects from his daily discoveries. Through looking back over the pages, reoccurring themes reveal themselves and define the voice that is demanding to speak.  Teuton then lets his life unfold in the work, and it becomes a part and a guide of the work itself. His paintings, which may seem quick and frivolous, have taken months to eek out a simple line or a simple shade. His envy of the subtle qualities of other painters is a motivation and as Teuton says: “My vulgarity just gets in the way and I end up spilling everything out in the open.”

I am vain and I am a liar. I have stolen emotions for my own feeding and I have built brightly colored walls around me to create a story that allows me to keep everyone around me out. Through this I have become a monster clutching and greedy. The balance with need has been lost and I have fully surrendered to a web of want. I misbehave and find solace in being cruel. Cycles and circles have been left incomplete. 

I am left to pick up the pieces and let them smash down. There is nothing else to do but set a fire and bear proudly black feathers of my own creation. This exhibition explores and symbolizes this journey. 

We look forward to your visit and would like to invite you and your friends to the OPENing on Thursday 19 May, 2011 at 8:30pm to 10pm.
