Artist Statement Enter Artist Statement Here Celea Guevara Thesis Statement I work hard for my artwork can reflect my identity, essence and culture. I creatively express myself allowing my soul and spirituality to manifest through every work. The human figure, particularly women plays a protagonist part in my processes. The creation of my work is developed in different techniques, process and media: painting, Drawing, Printmaking, Sculpture, Color pencils, Pastels, Watercolor and ink. Experimenting with lines, color, texture and creating singular point of multiplicity. Since my beginnings as an artist, my work has been the documentation and reflection of the human condition.
