Between the figurative and the abstract, nature and the human,urbanity and the immaterial: Celine Brossard's creative process is characterized by a sensitivity to innovation rather than to straightforward identity. Flowing from this, nevertheless,is a strong and deliberate signature style. Thus, a complete body of work.
Celine Brossard is an artist of multiple strengths who strives to marry colours,textures and contrasts in ways which awaken in the observer a sense of both fascination and delight. Be they pure and refined or charged with energy, her compositions are invariably harmonious, blending the complexity of the subject matter with the purity of her chosen colours. The brilliant balance between the figurative and the abstract makes her artistic creations both rich and complete.
Her subjects, graceful and enigmatic,merge with the intangible universe where they inhabit the canvas in search of a consciousness, of a shared self-awareness with the observer. The observer is both charmed and moved by the thoughtful and thought-provoking works of the artist in the constant search for meaning through the creative process. While always exploring new ideas Celine Brossard is nonetheless faithful to her well recognized signature style of painting. True to herself,she yields freely to her creative instincts while in constant dialogue with the world around her.

Indeed, the fact that her paintings can now be found in the four corners of the world attests to her universal appeal, to her mastery of her art and to her ongoing evolution in the pursuit of her artistic passion.
