About Magdalena Cerha

My art is auto-biographical. It also follows the seasons, and changes from year to year. Through art, I explore my mental health and aspirations in life.
My style varies with the various stages of life. Life is not, nor is my art, singular. I perceive my art as feminine; it is kind and offers me consolation and light.
I prefer oil on canvas, a technique that is easy for me to employ. As of late, I combine oil on canvas with collage. I collect scraps from old botany and art books.
Painting is a process; I often walk away from a piece, only to return to it once the next step has become clear to me. Nature and my garden inspires me, when I paint during cold winter days.
