About

Artist Statement

Celeste's core concern is always to create works that can depict her understandings on things and express her personal feelings about them. Rebuilding significant memories is also her main purpose of creation. Colour is the root of all Celeste's paintings, corresponding with a variety of materials that can create responsive effects to the memories.  Her practice focuses on painting spontaneously onto the canvas to make abstract compositions, using the specialty of different brushes and tools.
