The Maximalist Banquet 2018-2020

The title of Mr Teather’s 2018 exhibition, Maximalist Banquet, refers to the painter’s interest in excess and overloading his images with both subject matter, colour and symbolism. This is evident in another new collection: the painter’s fluorescent and supernatural reinterpretations of Tudor Era Portraits. These are a sort of psychotropic pop-art take on European court painting, that includes scenes of hell coming out of Henry 8th’s head.

The show is about every thing all at once, in glorious technicolour; a cornucopic banquet for the senses. A long-standing reference for me is Aldous Huxley’s 1954 essay, The Doors of Perception, that explored a variety of concepts, including the idea that the brain eliminates unessential information from the totality of the “mind at large.” This exhibition is, perhaps, about trying to reveal those things that may otherwise go unnoticed as we filter our everyday life.
