Césan’s work is a balance between form and freedom, as well as the conventional and eccentric. Bold creations emerge from her canvas as she re-imagines, re-works, and remembers symbols and iconography. While Césan’s subjects are simple and familiar, her expression is original, bold, rhythmic, spiritual and sculptural. Césan opens a creative door behind an idea, and carefully allows it to explode onto the canvas.”My practice is as much about meditation as it is about painting. The enduring relevance of the marriage of art and spirit has been impressed upon me throughout my life, from visits to sacred sites around the world to a long immersion in scholarship on the subject. I’ve been using painting for nearly 20 years principally as a methodology for my own research on this relationship.
