‘It Is What Is Not Yet Known’ By Kiah Celeste

Kiah Celeste’s first solo exhibition is composed of large sculptures. Once a photographer, she now creates assemblage with a focus on the environment. But, she realizes her use of industrial leftovers is a contradiction. “Celeste also finds inspiration in the natural world,” gallerist John Brooks explains, “employing these manmade materials to mimic what she sees as its inescapable, certain and ultimately unsurpassable beauty.” It’s all in how you look at it; in what once was discarded junk is now art.
