Cecelia Feld: Chasing the Unexpected highlights recent explorations in collage by Cecelia Feld (Dallas, TX). Feld received a B.A. from Hunter College, N.Y. in 1963 then moved to Dallas, where she currently resides, to receive a Master of Fine Arts degree in 1976 from the University of North Texas. Cecelia has exhibited her paintings, drawings, prints and photographs in juried and invitational exhibits as well as numerous solo exhibitions throughout the United States.
Cecelia Feld Artist Statement: "My work, whether in printmaking or painting, is about exploring relationships. Bits and pieces from my visual experiences bump against each other. There are references in my work to the textures, colors, lines and shapes of things in the real world. The layering or unfolding of shapes, punctuations or expanses of color or character of a line order the picture plane. The resulting abstract images allude to natural forms. My collagraph and/or monotype prints frequently become the basis for collage. The prints are background or foreground and provide texture and color which play off against other kinds of found paper to make the collage."
