Celine Langevin

Born in Saint-Hyacinthe, Céline is a self-directed artist living in the Glebe since 1981. Her paintings are a reflection of her love of people, nature, and concern for the environment. Using acrylic or watercolour, Céline strives to capture the essence of her subjects and share with the viewer the initial emotion. Cityscapes and landscapes are of contemporary inspiration. Portraiture is used to develop a unique figurative style in watercolours. Her work is a celebration of the artist’s passion for nature and the creative process.

D'abord attirée par le portrait et l'architecture, j'ai étendu peu à peu mes sujets pour inclure le paysage et la peinture sur le motif. J'aime peindre les milieux construits, habités et enveloppés de nature.
Provoquer chez le spectateur une émotion, celle initialement ressentie en présence d'une scène ou d'une personne, lorsque la lumière jouant sur les formes, suggère la transparence ou l'opacité, l'évanescence ou la précision, voilà ce que je vise.
L'art demeure, pour moi, une façon d'apprivoiser et de transformer le réel. L'expérience de création visuelle reste une aventure fascinante, mystérieuse et presque magique lorsque le tout prend forme.

Over the past decade, Céline studied with local artists: Crystal Beshara, Bhat Boy, John Alexander Day and Dhanashri, among others.

Celine has participated in exhibitions with Bhat Boy’s studio in 2009, 2010 and 2012.
