> DESCRIPTION

Celia Reisman's intimate gouache paintings and easel size oil paintings depict altered views of the domestic landscape.  Her paintings explore the relationship between memory and perception, where real and imaginary views of the everyday world transform the familiar into fiction.  Through her use of heightened color and distortion of space and perspective, the paintings display gentle, complex puzzles that slowly reveal their mysteries. 

 

Reisman is represented by Gross McCleaf Gallery in Philadelphia, which will present her eighth solo exhibition in November 2007.  Her works on paper are carried by Pointie Dog Press in New York.  Over the past twenty years, her work has been exhibited in many solo and group shows in the United States and the U.K.  In 2000, she was the subject of a retrospective exhibition at the Michener Museum in Doylestown, Pennsylvania.  She received a BFA from Carnegie-Mellon University and an MFA from Yale University. She is currently Assistant Professor of Studio Art at Swarthmore College.
