British artists

Celia Kettle is a visual artist from London, with a BA Fine Arts from Middlesex University, UK. She is currently living and working in Valencia, Spain. 

Her abstract paintings use the image of a circle to evoke a symbolic world of dissolving planets and overflowing oceans. Repainting used canvases creates a texture, over which she allows diluted washes of watercolour and acrylic paint to flow and settle. 

Using found materials began while an art student at Middlesex University, London, where she deconstructed a found object from the rubbish that was later shown at the National Gallery. While at the University of Valencia she was awarded a prize to exhibit at 'Llocs Llures' in Javea, a sculpture made up of second hand shoes cut in half. 

Celia considers her art to follow the genre of artists such as Eva Hesse, Anslem Kiefer and Anish Kapoor whose work is multidisciplinary, exploring the qualities of different materials in order to express a personal and spiritual vision. 

"In a moment of realization, I suddenly became aware of a new way of seeing. My return to creating art after a period away meant that I had found a new sense of purpose. What was central to my creativity was my inner world of feelings. However, now I had a stronger awareness of changes in the world around me. 
The metaphor of the sea, the clouds, the Earth communicates the intensity of an emotion. I tell the story of a circle that is an individual, it's the Earth, and it's also myself. The line that draws its border defines its boundaries. Keeping within the lines is something I find hard to do, all too easily emotions can spill out as does the paint when it overflows".
