"Where the Light Enters You" is about what is possible in life. The beauty. The joy. The love. It is about the impossible made possible. This painting is a panorama or vision of what we can do to make our world kinder, of the beauty that we can share, and the possibilities when we put our minds together for good. I want you to walk away from this painting and hold that vision in your heart and to embrace humanity with new perspective.

Teresa Dirk’s artistic voice is profoundly influenced by her upbringing in the rustic American south. Seamstresses, quilters, gardeners, and farmers, served as creative role models throughout her childhood that cultivated her love of nature, growth, and creativity. She works in mixed media to create abstracts that channel the energy of her past. Her paintings are deeply personal and carry precise meanings and particular stories to them. The whimsical lines and playful color choices lend themselves to a childlike quality that charms with nostalgia. Though each of her paintings reflect her personal surroundings and history, she delves into complex conceptual topics, such as urban decay and nature’s fundamental connections. She has a passion for the process, and views it as propagating the brilliant and expressive energy she has witnessed throughout her life.
