About the artist
Cécile Lempert

Cécile Lempert’s art stems from a deep connection to subject matter and is quiet, contemplative and ultimately moving into a feeling of oscillation between closeness and distance.

Her portraits open up a painterly and conceptual dialogue between the dual role of subject and artist. She examines its presence and its absence as well as offering an extended consideration of the medium’s ability to capture qualities of form, light and atmosphere.

These paintings are suffused with echoes and resonances of passing time reflecting the fragility of life. “The pupil of my counterpart disappears and becomes a light brown glass with a violet edge, the eyelids form large wrinkles that make the eyes soft, like those of an old child.”

Her attempt to capture the moment brings us solace: The consoling beauty of and flow of time that connects us all.
