Celia is a French contemporary visual artist. After 2 decades spent between 4 continents, she's now located in Aberdeen, Scotland.
As a self taught artist, she mostly works from intuition and emotion. Spontaneous expression that is nonlinear and nonlogical instead of an intellectual exercise for technical perfection.
Over time she diversified herself, using various medium (acrylic, pastels, spray paint, photography...) and media (canvas, walls, digital...). Always focusing on expressing the complexity and beauty of her life experience.
Her works have been exhibited in the US, UAE, Europe and Switzerland.
My exploration into abstract art began when I was very young, I always drew. As I grew up doodles appeared on every scrap of paper left unattended… notes, magazines, envelopes, nothing was left unadorned.
I paint and take pictures as an explorer going on a journey into my irrational world of emotions, hopes, fears, dreams and desires. I disappear into the unknown and dig for what will unravel and reveal itself. Concentrating on the stream of consciousness, with a focus on distilling physical and intellectual experiences with a sense of spirituality, deeply embedded symbolism and a hint of sarcasm.
Painting and taking photos are my daily meditation; the joy of freedom. The freedom of being myself, letting go of judgments and expectations and trusting the process!
