Opening Reception “Looking at You” Paintings by Celine Ludewig

  • 7th September 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Sept. 7 – Oct. 3, 2016

“Looking at you” is a project Celine Ludewig started in summer of 2015. Having left her hometown in Germany to explore a new place required her to take a step back and really look at the people around her:

“What they love doing, how they feel, talk and think. In order to collect these raw moments of people not feeling watched, I started painting musicians and people on the street who didn’t realize they were painted. A good musician forgets about the audience while he or she is playing, they are lost in the moment and their emotion depends only on the music. While playing, they are completely authentic. Having a better understanding of others I can show the things I see to them, can help them see themselves more clearly,” Celine said.

“Since we – as humans – are always alone with our selves in our minds, it can make us feel quite isolated and lost. We forget that others are going threw the same things as we do, that we are all just humans. Seeing others live the same situations might make us feel lees like an Aileen and more like a part of a bigger whole.”

Celine is from a small town called Osnabrück in Germany. When she was 16, she came to Thailand for the first time as an exchange student. She lived with a Thai family and went to high school here. When back in Germany, she finished her secondary school final exams while simultaneously studying fine art at the University of Osnabrück. After two years she decided to come back to Thailand to find her voice as an artist.

Celine will be showing her work in the Neilson Hays Library Rotunda from Sept. 7 to Oct. 3. The opening for her show will be at 6 pm on Wednesday, Sept. 7.
