"Celia Paul: Contemporary Paintings, Watercolours and Prints"
2005-03-19 until 2005-06-11
Sheffield Galleries and Museum Trust, Graves Art Gallery
Sheffield, , UK United Kingdom

An exhibition of work by a remarkable and highly original figurative painter begins at the Graves Art Gallery, Sheffield on 19 March 2005 and runs until 11 June. The exhibition, curated in association with Marlborough Fine Art, London, surveys Celia Paul's artistic achievement during the last 15 years and includes major paintings, watercolours and prints. The exhibition follows on from Celia's exhibition, Stillness at Abbot Hall Art Gallery, Kendal last year, with some recent explorative additions.

Celia Paul's paintings and prints are intimate portraits of people she knows well and invariably depict a single model or group. She mainly paints those closest to her, including her mother, son, four sisters and also herself. The artist creates images that are deep in character, while exploring the effect of light on her subjects, bringing stillness, intimacy, lucidity and a sense of inner mood to the canvas and to her large scale watercolours and prints.

Celia Paul was born in 1959 in Trivandrum, India. She attended the Slade School of Art, London from 1976-1981. She has exhibited widely and has works in many public collections including The British Museum, the V&A and the Metropolitan Museum, New York.
