Celeste Neuhaus recently relocated to Pittsburgh.... thank GAWD! We were in desperate need of the kind of quiet yet intensely sparkling energy Celeste has to offer. I visited her studio in the strip district the other day to find some wondrous displays of raw materials (ribbons, feathers, halloween candy collecting pumpkins, plastic eggs and pills) and some fantastic in process pieces. Celeste "creates order out of chaos" by distributing all of this detritus in beautifully mystical and painfully organized paintings, sculptures and videos.
I'm posting a little taste of her work in hopes that she'll soon be all over Pittsburgh and the world... Take a look here and on her website celesteneuhaus.com.
