More Artwork from Bruges

This has certainly taken a while to update!  Between completing my residency in Bruges and moving cities, I simply did not have the time (or the internet connection) to upload the remaining two images. Here are two complete drawing of the male model from the Bruges residency that I will be posting. Like with the other works, these are done with graphite on paper.

Artist Residency in Bruges

I am currently an artist-in-residence in Bruges and have been learning from Restructured Realist Ted Seth Jacobs. We recently did a two-week pose and I completed two variations of the same pose – one on white paper and the other on blue paper. The one on white paper has some of Ted Seth Jacobs’ drawn annotations on it. The one on blue paper (with graphite and white chalk) is a clean rendition.

Official Press Release

Suspended Flux: Multiculturalism in Singapore

by Heidi Celeghin (Brazil)
As a Brazilian who grew up in an international environment, now living in the United States, and traveling around the world, artist Heidi Celeghin is constantly experiencing new cultures and exploring new definitions of identity. She is fascinated with both how people assimilate and how they remain connected to their roots. It is challenging to grow up between cultures but it also provides one with a wonderful opportunity to bridge gaps and begin dialogues. Multiculturalism is powerful – it can dissolve barriers and destroy fears of the unknown Other. Her show explores Singapore’s internationalism through a combination of new media portraiture and installation. Heidi Celeghin is simultaneously capturing the diverse people who live in Singapore and the architectural structure alternately surrounding/defining/uniting them.  In this exhibition, there will be 10 oil paint and digital painting on canvases and 10 digital paintings on archival paper featured.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Heidi Celeghin is a Brazilian artist currently teaching at the Glassell Junior School of Art, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. She divides her time between Houston and Manhattan, primarily working in oil, graphite, and ink. Her artwork has been shown twice in Houston’s Reliant Center, twice in Ithaca’s Johnson Museum of Art, the Norma R. Ory Gallery of the MFAH, and other notable locations. Her artwork is in private collections in Houston, Manhattan, and Barcelona. She studied in Cornell University and pursued additional artistic studies in The School of Visual Arts (New York) and the Angel Academy of Art in Florence.

Artwork: Cityscapes & Portraits

Originally posted on heidiceleghin.com

Here are some of my recent works for my solo show in June.  These digital paintings will be printed on cotton acid-free paper, framed, and hung on the wall.  They will be a combination of portraits of people I see in my daily outings in Singapore and the places around the city. This will in a sense mimic the idea that people travel inside the liminal space that is public transport with the sole purpose of exiting at their “real” location.  In that way, the MRT can only be remembered as a sea of people – some standing out more than others – and not as an actual location in and of itself.
