Teresa Eng’s observations of the traces and imperfections of everyday life act as a starting point for her work. These observations allow her to make sense of the world around her. Eng finds that the tinest of details can say just as much about the world as a vast landscape can.

She tends to work on a certain theme over a longer period of time, revisiting a place over several months to a few years. This temporal and physical distance allows her process to her thoughts while allowing new and existing strands of ideas to merge together.

Teresa, who was born in Vancouver, Canada, currently lives and works in London, England.
