CELESTE GOMEZ: by Andrew Earl Singer.
Celeste utilizes her imagination in creating a collection of fetishistic imagery that utilizes the theme of love in a shock tactic depicting beautiful women, men and androgynous characters in her iconic art. Being compared to the finest mainstream comic book artists, her characters like theirs are dressed in skin tight leather many in a bondage type of situation. Her avant garde subjects are fitted with her original undergarments, stockings, high heels, corsets and boots, leather, leather and more leather, especially prevalent in the wardrobe of her DOMINATRIX. Celeste herself can be the model of her own artistry as she exposes herself in photographs as a beautiful dominatrix, making her, a living example that has stepped in and out of her own art works. Many of the art masterpiece delve into its own psychological androgyny of passion and aggression, all have a timeless spectrum of other world elusiveness that contains our very own voyeuristic nature. Celeste while nurturing her own passion for Gothic Arts is allowing the public through Facebook to study her work and interact with her, it becomes obvious that her training as an artist gave her an assertiveness that goes above and beyond most people. It is obvious that Celeste as a female artist has opened up a window for all to see from whatever part of society that they come from, no doubt, if we let it, our imaginations can run the gamut of possibilities. Even to the possibility that we can be a character in her art. Celeste concentrates on the subtle aspects of the environment that she creates, the ones that other artists are inclined to dismiss as unimportant. Her effort in transferring what is on her mind to canvas is not a gender specific account as the mainstream understands, as the usual traits in relationships. Truly innovative adaptations have thrown the ideal situations of mundane love into a whirlwind of drama in an innovative mindset. She has utilized her creative processes into indulgence outside of the normal processes and created a body of work that has its own collective consciousness and there are those among us that are living examples of the roster of people inhabiting the planet. The key characteristics of her creative luminaries are so powerfully created by the artist that they are real, that we want to know them, yet, the characters are elusive. Celeste is beyond the strength of her own imagination, her courage to strive for that which is unrealistically unattainable is really delving into the strength of our own imagination, culturally important and personally indispensable to both the spiritual survival of us and Celeste.
