About

Cecilia Reeve (b.1996) is a London-based Artist exploring the intersection between Painting and Animation. She is currently undertaking her MA in Animation at the Royal College of Art, she completed her foundation at Falmouth University (2014) and studied Illustration (BA) at the University of Brighton, graduating in 2018.

Cecilia has sold work to private collectors and institutions such as Soho House and has exhibited her paintings with galleries including the Delphian Gallery in London. Since 2020 Cecilia has made several collections for Partnership Editions. Her work has been featured in ‘Its Nice That’; Harper’s Bazaar; Elephant; Creative Boom; Stylist online and The Evening Standard. Her animations have been shown globally at a variety of film festivals including Sundance Film Festival 2022 and the London Short Film Festival 2023.

In a dreamlike narrative, a woman takes a bath and reflects upon her past experiences; submerged in the water she enters a space out of time. It is an existentialist film questioning the boundaries the between body and the outside world, between water and skin. Using traditional frame by frame animation, Cecilia combines paint on glass, gouache and digital animation to create a tactile and intimate film.
