Watch: “I need to paint every single day” – Celia Borg Cardona

During this episode of Newsbook.com.mt‘s online cultural programme ‘Take a Bow‘, Coryse Borg speaks to Celia Borg Cardona about the 27th edition of the BOV Retrospective Art Exhibition, which this year is celebrating the works of Borg Cardona and her bold, vigorous and expressive brushworks. 

The art of Celia Borg Cardona is usually concerned with the unusual viewpoint, very often of groups of people seen from a high viewpoint either casually strolling in streets or engaged in group activities such as processions and band marches, Maltese streetscapes and buildings, including iconic ones. She revels in the use of oil and acrylic paint, leaving as much evidence of her marks on the surface of the canvas as possible.

The BOV Retrospective Art Exhibition, which is curated by Francesca Balzan and dedicated to Daphne Caruana Galizia, who was a personal friend of both Borg Cardona and Balzan, will be hosted at the Gran Salon at the Auberge de Provence (National Museum of Archaeology) in Triq ir-Repubblika, Valletta until the 4th March 2020 from 9.00 am till 5.00 pm every day with the last admission at 4.30 pm.

Gallery Talks will be held with the artist herself on the 10th February at 10.00 am and 11th February at 1.00 pm.
