Expressionist dynamism, sensuality, eroticism along with the exploration of privacy and intimacy idea, their meaning in contemporary times connected to the redefinition of modesty, prudence and discretion shines on the canvas by Celia Hempton, who depicts landscapes, the bodies of friends and models (some of them sourced via internet and chat-rooms), focusing on their “private parts”. The young, brilliant and renowned London based artist – I was pleased to know many years ago and share with her joyful interludes – will open her first solo exhibition on 20th February 2014 in Rome at the Galleria Lorcan O’ Neill in Via Orti di Alibert and will run through 19th April 2014. A not to be missed happening to enjoy a vibrant artist.

Dinamismo espressionista, sensualità, erotismo unitamente all’ esplorazione dell’ idea di privacy e intimità, il significato da loro assunto nella contemporaneità, connesso alla ridefinizione di modestia, prudenza e discrezione, splende sulle tele di Celia Hempton, la quale dipinge paesaggi, i corpi di amici e modelli (alcuni dei quali ricercati via internet e chat-rooms), concentrandosi sulle loro “parti intime”. La giovane, brillante e rinomata artista residente a Londra – mi ha rallegrato incontrare diversi anni fa e condividere con lei gioiosi intermezzi – aprirà la sua prima collettiva il 20 febbraio 2014 a Roma alla Galleria Lorcan O’ Neill in Via Orti di Alibert e proseguirà fino al 19 aprile 2014. Un evento imperdibile per apprezzare una vibrante artista.
