Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
Cecilia Fiona's mythical worlds, all painted with rabbit-skin glue and pigments, are populated by creatures halfway between humans, animals and nature, born, living and dying simultaneously. By blending existing myths and folklore from different regions and times she builds her own mythological worlds where the boundaries between man and earth, dream and reality, life and death are fluid and in constant transformation.
