Essentially a painter, Teisseire uses paint as a physical material to be manipulated, by pouring it, giving it in to gravity, chance and time. Those transformational processes focused on materiality, texture and surface are central to his practice. In his own words: The idea that one can take one thing for another greatly motivates my production and pushes my paintings on a field of interpretation beyond the sole field of abstraction; In the sense that I try to cross or confuse the organization.
