Celia Gullett is a Sydney-based painter. Her work is influenced by art-historical movements, including abstraction, colour field painting and minimalism, as well as ancient Asian philosophies.
Gullett states, “Everything I do is centred around colour and surface. Visible depths in the paint are created by layering and reduction, to evoke a sense of diffused light, and the crystallisation of experience into paint.” The tension in this process, between the repetitious brushstroke and layering to create optical complexity, is the touchstone of Gullett’s studio practice.
Gullett graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the College of Fine Arts, University of New South Wales. She has held solo exhibitions since 2002 and participated in group exhibitions since 1996 in Australia, Singapore, London and Sweden. Her paintings are held in the Macquarie University Art Collection, SECCA collection and in private collections.
