September 2016 - Cecilia Román - Portals
Curator and Artist's Statement
Cecilia Román is formally trained in the field of audio visual communications. Her artistic vision has evolved over twenty years to include oil paintings focusing on abstractions. Her style incorporates the valuable instruction in mentoring of community artists.
“Everyone should think about how we can brush with art. This exhibition serves as a catalyst to explore the arts; to use its methods to communicate, create and react to our surroundings. The exhibition is comprised of works that speak the language of expression.”
This exhibition servers as a gateway to a mental portal
of thoughts and Expressive Realism.
These art expressions of beyond the threshold thinking
are the beginnings of a nurtured inspiration.
A new day holds the expectation of possibilities in Still Lake.
Possibilities challenges realism. Yes, it is there. Do you see it?
Night Stories A and B are storytelling adventures in color and form.
The fact that they are captured on canvas[s] makes them real.
The paintings are tales of hope, horror and fantasy.
The portal scenes titled Seasons focuses on
nature’s beauty in its simplest style.
Have we forgotten the expanding realm of the universe?
Have we lost the sense of exploration?
Are we seizing the years, months, days, minutes and seconds
of possibilities and engagements?
The wonder of thought is forever creative,
Cecilia Román, Artist
