Artist

Cecilia Reeve

Cecilia Reeve is a London-based artist and animator who recently graduated from the University of Brighton where she studied Illustration.

Cecilia focuses on themes based around femininity, using her art to capture the ethereal world of emotion that cannot be explained in words. Working in pencil, markers and pastels her nuanced work is often set in veiled, atmospheric interiors where curtains ruffle in the breeze and sunlight slants across bare floorboards.

Cecilia's Style

In these settings, the inhabitants are aware of an onlooker while, at the same time, appearing not to care about being observed. 

Through these stolen glimpses of other worlds, Cecilia invites the viewer to experience different emotions, ranging from feelings of isolation and desire to contemplation.

"I think that the most important thing to me is to evoke an emotional response with the viewer." - Cecilia Reeve

Spring Limited Edition Prints

Drop 1 - New Year 2021

"I read once that swimming is the closest we feel to flying and in this collection I wanted to explore the complete freedom that being submerged in water invites. Working in gouache paint I drew inspiration from photos, memory and my imagination to create a series of fantastical pools and swimmers." - Cecilia Reeve, Submerged and Flying

Drop 5 - Winter 2020

"In this collection I wanted to create a series of etchings that were mediative and tranquil; exploring small moments of stillness and beauty. Inspired by my own imagination, surroundings and memories I wanted these prints to work together as a three and also on their own. Etching is not a process I am too familiar with and it was wonderful for me to explore and adapt to this new medium."- Cecilia Reeve, The Etching Series

Winter Limited Edition Prints

Drop 4 - Autumn 2020

"In this collection I wanted to explore the mythologies and mysticsm that surround water and bathing. I was very much inspired by a lot of the wild swimming I did over the summer after lockdown eased. Using gouache and soft pastel I worked from my memories and imagination to capture these dreamlike ventures."- Cecilia Reeve, Catching Water

Drop 3 - High Summer 2020

"This collection was sort of a love letter to swimming pools. I wanted to explore the feelings of freedom and contemplation that these spaces ignite. I really enjoyed making this collection, exploring different ways to create watery effects. Some of the spaces are imagined dreamlike interiors while others are inspired by real places and memories. " - Cecilia Reeve

Drop 2 - Spring / Summer 2020

"An unintentional motif that arose in my new collection was the sense of both escape and restrictiveness that is offered by light and windows. Whether it be the setting sun glimpsed through a bathroom window, or a shadow cast on the floor. 

My pieces were made during lockdown when I took inspiration from my own environment and also from photos friends had taken of their own spaces. The sense of bringing the outside inside in these pictures helps highlight my own feelings of peaceful isolation during lockdown." - Cecilia Reeve
