Painting As A Portal To Embodiment with Carmen Ceniga

View descriptionShare

This week, I have a beautiful artist on the Pod.

Carmen Ceniga Prado uses her work as a medium to reconnect with the internal body and its cycles of subtle shapeshifting. Through abstract painting and carved wooden sculptures, her works grapple with the invisible but potent pulses of vitality that move through and around us. Using the body as a starting point, the pieces are a reflection of the range of emotional states or embodied sensations, such as darkness, clarity, anxiety as well as the moments in between. 

Carmen started her studies in Fine Arts at Pratt Institute in New York in 2015 (supported by their International Merit Scholarship), before finishing her Bachelor of Fine Arts at Wimbledon College of Arts at the University of the Arts London in 2018. Recent notable shows include Rationale for Fables (Singapore, 2023), New Makers at Atta Gallery (Bangkok, 2023), Entre Aguas at Aldama Fabre Gallery (Bilbao, 2022), and At Dusk, We Tread the Earth at starch (Singapore, 2022).

Episode highlights:

  • Art as a means of embodiment of internal body experiences
  • Life as an endless spiral, and what that means for Carmen
  • Carmen’s shift from physical practice to her mindfulness journey, and how she relays her internal observation through her art-making
  • Experiences as abstract
  • The impact of AI on modern day art
  • Art therapy and what it’s all about
