Celia’s Studio



© Copyright Celia Liberace 2023

    Celia Liberace (b. 2000) is a DMV and NYC-based painter, having recently completed her BFA at The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art in Manhattan. She has also studied at L’École des Beaux-Arts in Paris and Accademia Vivarium Novum in Frascati, Italy. In 2023, she was a faculty member of The Portrait Society of America.
Much of her work represents an amalgamation of both classical representation and  modern interpretations of contemporary life, using herself and loved ones as her primary life subjects. Celia uses human anatomy to reflect upon complex systems woven within nature and to communicate topics regarding sexuality, identity, social and environmental consciousness, and self-actualization. She is deeply fascinated by the body’s potential to convey evolving psychological, spiritual, and physical states, and the simultaneous deterioration or evolution of the body and one’s natural environment.
