The Directors of Marlborough Fine Art are to announce their forthcoming exhibition of Celia Paul’s work, Identity, which comprises some 40 paintings, watercolours and works on paper completed over the last four years.
Celia Paul was born in 1959 and studied at the Slade from 1976-1981. She has exhibited widely and her work was included in the major exhibition The School of London: From Bacon to Bevan at the Musée Maillol in Paris which travelled to Santiago de Compostela and the Kunsthaus Vienna in 1998-99. A Retrospective of her work entitled Stillness was shown at the Abbot Hall Art Gallery, Kendal in 2004.
In 2005 Celia’s exhibition Shadows was shown at the Graves Art Gallery in Sheffield and in 2006 her London exhibition, Where I am Now, was held at the Marlborough. In June 2010 Celia was included in the Self-Consciousness Exhibition at the Veneklasen Werner Gallery in Berlin, curated by Hilton Als and Peter Doig.
Her work is included in many private and public collections including the British Museum, the Victoria & Albert Museum, the Metropolitan Museum, New York, the Yale Center for British Art and the Saatchi Collection.
The exhibition, commencing 26 January to the 26 February 2011, will also present an exhibition titled Mothers and Daughters – with etchings and drawings based on this theme.
A fully illustrated catalogue for Identity includes an introduction by Catherine Lampert. Kate Soper has written the introduction to the catalogue for Mothers and Daughters, the graphics exhibition.
