  • Artist Statement

    Celia aims to bring the viewer into a closer relationship with nature by drawing attention to natural processes such as organic decay and contrasting that with our yearning for permanence and the need to appropriate these elements into our capitalist system. She places a strong emphasis on reusing and recycling found materials as an avoidance of consumerist culture. Her work often combines abstract painting techniques with mixed media, which can sometimes result in three dimensional forms.


    Exploring the physical qualities of the objects she selects is an important part of the process, allowing her to bring art into a relationship with the natural world where the physical elements have their own voice. In this way it is more about observing how they react rather than imposing her own ideas. Celia Kettle represents a feminine response which is essentially opposed to the patriarchal model of domination over the natural world.
