Jennifer Celio Artist Bio:
I am a Southern California native who really loves Los Angeles. My delicately rendered drawings manipulate perception, creating fantastical iterations in which artificial and natural imagery fuse to become newly impossible scenes. Processing seemingly disparate parts into a surreal whole, I derive inspiration from the urban environment, environmental issues, hot button political topics, and graphic design and font elements. Working in graphite pencil on paper, I create obsessively detailed scenes with cross hatching techniques, while mining a deep trove of symbols and objects that continue to haunt me. Her drawings have been exhibited in solo exhibitions at Cristinerose Gallery and Kathleen Cullen Fine Arts in New York City, the Creative Artists’ Agency in Los Angeles, romo gallery in Atlanta, GA, Bandini Art in Culver City, CA, California State University Dominguez Hills in Carson, CA, and Phantom Galleries in Long Beach, CA. Her work has been included in exhibits in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Atlanta and Houston; and Canada, and in museum exhibits in the Los Angeles area and Indianapolis. She is the recipient of individual artist grants from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation (2012), The City of Los Angeles (C.O.L.A.) Individual Artist Fellowship (2014), and The Center for Cultural Innovation’s Artist’s Resources for Completion grant (2012.) She was awarded a residency at Yaddo in Saratoga Springs, NY, in August 2014. Her drawings have received critical review in such publications as The Los Angeles Times, LA Weekly, Art Papers, Art Ltd. Magazine, Artillery Magazine, the Huffington Post, Flavorpill, The Orange County Register and The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
