Teale Hatheway


Teale Hatheway is a Los Angeles based artist known for her mixed media paintings and installations of local architecture, streetlights and ornamental details. Inspired by her Los Angeles family heritage, Hatheway’s work creates connections with other inhabitants of and visitors to her hometown.

At its core, Hatheway’s work is about people. She contemplates ideas of memory, experience and the soulful residues left behind as people inhabit, focus on, use and pass through physical spaces. Hatheway uses the visual languages of architecture, infrastructure, color and pattern to suggest the depth and complexity of the life of the city. Through these visual clues, her abstract paintings tease recognition but require intentional inquiry to decipher. They beg viewers to unplug and tune into the tangible history surrounding them: becoming present and connecting with a community.

After studying at University College London’s Slade School of Fine Art, Hatheway received her BA from Scripps College (Claremont, CA). Galleries, museums and alternative spaces throughout Southern California have exhibited her abstract architectural paintings, including:
