Morgana Celeste is a Melbourne-based florist and emerging artist. Combining her love of materiality and composition – and her studies in floristry and textile design – Morgana makes textural, abstract three-dimensional works that sit somewhere between painting and sculpture.
Made using an unconventional mix of materials such as paper pulp, fine cement and high quality acrylic paint, each piece draws attention to the medium’s tactile quality and surprising beauty, rendered unrecognisable from its original form and intended use. Once fluid and malleable, the hardened surface preserves a physical memory of the maker’s hands as well as the feelings and visual stimuli present at the moment of creation. Every piece is a playful collage of memories, textures and found visuals celebrating light-hearted moments of tenderness and quiet beauty.
