Teressa Valla’s work can best be described as a reverence to humanity, movement, space, life, and the unity of them all. Her painting, sculpture, and photography illuminate the harmony of nature and urbanity and the musical lyricism that connects them. Throughout her work are themes of dance, community, nature, and architecture. These themes are often entwined with one another, showcasing the affinity between people and their environments, both man-made and natural. Teressa Valla lives and creates a block away from Central Park. Her work is in the permanent collections of The Library of Congress, The Museum of the City of New York, Tribes Gallery, New England Center for Contemporary Art, The New York Public Library, and additional public and private collections.
