Celeste Amparo Pfau

Celeste Amparo Pfau

Celeste Amparo Pfau is a mixed media visual artist based in Birmingham, Alabama. She is known for creating one of a kind Botanical Monoprints using ethically sourced natural materials and an etching press, where she creates careful compositions on paper and fabric. In this show, Celeste presents the beginning of an exploration of how her art mediums of drawing, print making, sculpture and photography can be used to show the relationships of the human form to the plant world.
Celeste believes, "Plants have skeletal, vascular and tissue structures that remind us of forms we see inside and outside of our human bodies". Celeste is interested in creating work which honors and celebrates the fact that the human body is filled with millions of beneficial microorganisms. Her work aims to have people relate to their own bodies in a more aware and sensitive way and to pay closer attention to the wonders of breathing and eating and digestion. In the next few years, Celeste hopes to deepen her understanding of the human microbiome, and continue to use visual language to highlight the incredible things going on in and on our bodies that are not visible to the naked eye.
