Perez Celis


Celis was always interested in the expression of the universal dualities of the spiritual and material world. His paintings are powerful statements of life’s creative forces at work expressed in elegant, rhythmic compositions of dynamic brushwork and vivid color. His use of rich materials produces a thick physical world, unparalleled in intensity, with layered and piercing planes in a uniquely interwoven space.
