I recently met Cecile during her visit to Mark Borghi Fine Art when she came to the Hamptons for ArtHamptons. Her name above links to her web site. Her paintings are abstractions of her travels, both physical and emotional. They may allude to sunflower fields in France, the Italian countryside, New York City's Central Park, Morocco or Mexico, but they all reflect her feelings for the places visited rather than illastration of exact imagery.
Morocco, the warmth and attire of its people, Berber music, ornate architecture, breathtaking mountain villages, and colorful crafts are all imprinted in memory and later painted.
Moroccan Enclosures, a series of works executed with oils on linen canvas or paper, often Japanese mulberry paper, refer to villages, palatial courtyards, moushrabiyas, or wrought iron window gratings. The latter two evoke past, and, to a degree, present restrictions placed on women's lives.
In Brunswick's words; "When art and creators become ambassadors both at home and abroad, the ensuing dialogue and friendships formed, invariably open up a dialogue for peace and understanding among people of differing faiths and cultures. Can there be a better way?"
