Celia Eberle is a Dallas-based multimedia artist, with a near cult-like following, who describes her artistic pursuits as both “inexorable” (that which cannot be changed) and “inevitable” (that which always happens). She employs natural materials such as bone, wood, coral, and stone into her works that frequently examine the relationship between man and nature. Aesthetically, Eberle’s work almost feels like something out of Grimm’s classic fairy tales, combining a mixture of the fantastical, whimsical, and sinister. From castle turrets carved from bone to monumental sculpture shaped like a human foot and made of newsprint, Eberle is interested in mankind’s need to control the natural order and of disposability, both of which negatively affect the world we live in. There is another underpinning that can be found throughout her oeuvre; the great equalizers, death and decay, are represented through many of the natural and fragile materials used in Eberle’s work.
Celia Eberle has exhibited extensively throughout Texas as well as in Chicago, New York and Oregon. Most recently, Eberle is a 2015 Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant Recipient. Likewise, she is an inaugural recipient of the Nasher Sculpture Center Artist Microgrant. In 2014, Eberle’s mid-career retrospective, In the Garden of Ozymandias, debuted at the Art Museum of Southeast Texas. Her work is currently in the collections of: The Dallas Museum of Art, the J. Wayne Stark University Gallery at Texas A&M, the Longview Museum of Fine Arts, and the Art Museum of Southeast Texas.
