Artist Cecile Chalouni
San Francisco, California
Fine Art Photography
I grew up in the Loire valley in France. I loved dancing, playing, and telling stories at occasional restaurant dinners.
My training in photography was started thanks to my mother who showed me how to use her film reflex camera when I was a teen ager. And I took a private class recently!
I became an artist in the flow of the family life: my grand parents were amateur visual artists, and my mother is a musician and photographer.
My job is working as a biologist specialized in high-end microscopy, at Genentech. Imaging at work is extended at home and vice versa.I practice multiple visual media (photography, painting, collages, scans, and video). I like to further modify, combine and interpret images through digital processing. My creations are the results of observations, explorations and emotions.
“Floating” is an image taken from a series called “Unexposed”. The resulting images are soft intimate nudes translating emotions without obvious sexual content, nor strong identity. “Floating” is a combination of photography and painting. It may refer to a transitory or suspended feeling, state or moment, like in a dream, a decision process…The image is a self-portrait that mixes softness and tension.
Photography can allow one to be more anonymous naked than dressed.I have seen auras before knowing what they are.
