Celia Perceval: Spring

November 16, 2019 - December 15, 2019

Celia Perceval, Black Cockatoos Deep In The Gully With Rock Pools On Bells Creek, 2019. Oil on canvas, 152 x 198cm. Courtesy: the artist and Wagner Contemporary Gallery, Sydney.

 

Celia Perceval is a dedicated explorer of wild and hidden places, tramping across the wilds with her equipment searching out vistas that capture her imagination. While Perceval describes her response to her subjects as one that’s both personal and intensely emotional, her canvases are produced with consummate and careful skill. Many are executed en plein air, as she transcribes to canvas her encounters with the bush, and the animals and birds that live there.

It’s a direct kind of practice that values the artists senses, with the en plein air works usually left as they were completed in the field- a second strand of work being based on studies completed on location and then developed into finished pictures back in her studio.

 

Exhibition opens: 3–5pm Saturday 16 November 2019
