Praxis International Art is pleased to present Cool Breeze a solo exhibition of recent works by Cecile Chong. The visual and tactile quality of these mixed media works that are inspired in vintage children’s books is distinctive. The artist uses several layers of encaustic, oil, gold leaf, rice paper, ash from Ecuador (her native country), and pigments that have come from all over the world to create whimsical narratives in a soft-colored palette. Growing up in different places and being exposed to different cultures through her life, Cecile chooses nature as the backdrop for her new unfolded stories.
