 "As soon as you put two things together, 
      you get a story".

To convey images about the infinite connotations emerging from ones personal life experience, sounds so vast that becomes upsetting. It’s exactly here where Celeste Najt explores. She strives to show the impossible: Sensational dilemmas converted into thoughts and, why not, evolving into subtle notes, which communicate with the work, musicalising the encounter. Her narrative is multiple: words are mixed with textures, forming compositions which are completed with digital images and unique strokes. Kind colours are assembled and treasured together with found objects. She’s like a seamstress, extremely delicate in treating her snippets. These extracts of material are the bits and pieces of those relations between the inexplicable, knitted in some kind of synoptic map which exposes and analyzes the complexities of existence. 

Josefina Barcia, curator.
