Our Interview with Céline A.
Would you tell us about your very first artwork you owned?
My first ever artwork was a wedding gift. A group of my friends had this wonderful idea and I received Korrosion Blau by Olivier Weiller. It is an abstract and minimalistic work with the iron oxide giving it a unique tone that I love.
This work fascinated me so much that only a few months later I decided to buy Korrosion Patina Var. 2 as well – this is a sort of sister piece to my wedding present. I must admit, I am tempted to buy another work from the series Korrosion but I think I’ll have to wait a little bit longer.
What is the style of your collection and how do you display your artworks?
I am very fascinated by abstract art and sculptures. The use of materials such as iron and copper are particularly intriguing to me.
From my point of view, the less works there are in a room, the more they stand out on their own and are appreciated. I tend to prefer a rather minimalist approach, with there only being one or two artworks per room.
What makes you decide to buy a painting?
You can spend several hours looking for a work to buy, but in most cases it is an immediate crush, you feel it once you’ve found the “right” one. As a precaution, I think that one should always take a few days of reflection, showing the work to family or friends. After all, this is an important choice which should not be rushed.
What do you do to keep in touch with the art world?
Honestly, The Singulart newsletter. It regularly let’s me discover artworks that fit my taste. It is a great and easy way to stay up to date, get to know new artists and read about the art world.
A few short questions to get to know the taste of Céline A. a little bit better:
