Celia Paul’s paintings and drawings are intimate portraits of people and places she knows well.
“My work is about people and their emotions” she has said.
Her earlier dark-toned paintings have developed into light-filled images which include some large-scale watercolours and small-scale soft-ground etchings which are full of feeling. Celia’s exhibition “Stillness” was on view at Abbot Hall, Kendal, Cumbria in March-June 2004 and a small but important Retrospective exhibition of paintings and prints was exhibited at the Graves Art Gallery, Sheffield, 19 March – 11 June 2005. Celia Paul’s exhibition at Marlborough Fine Art, London, Where I am now, ran from 13 September 2006 until 7 October 2006 and was accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue with an introduction by Michael Podro.
Celia has exhibited at the annual Corner exhibition in Copenhagen since 2003.
