Daughter of Antipodeans John Perceval and Mary Boyd, Celia Perceval was born with painting in her blood. Her work is captured en plein air, wrought from the midst of the Australian bush. While landscape painting is often associated with control, Perceval’s approach embraces wilderness; as she has said, “I’m always going off the main thoroughfares into places where it looks like I can’t”.

Grass Trees and Wattle in the Sunlight is recognisably by Perceval. Kinetic, textual and immersive, her use of impasto paint renders the scene visceral, the experience of viewing it multisensory.

Nomadic in nature, Perceval has been painting since she was sixteen years old, surrounded by the elders of Australian modernism. Her work is represented at Bendigo Regional Gallery, New England Regional Gallery and across public and private collections nationally and internationally. For collectors of important landscape art, Grass Trees and Wattle in the Sunlight is a striking find.
