An abstract expressionist painter, trained in drawing with Cristina Galvez and watercolors with Juan Pastorelli, she then worked with Leslie Lee, present Director of the Escuela de Bellas Artes del Peru, and Miguel Nieri, professor of the Escuela de Bellas Artes del Peru and now of the Fine Arts Faculty of Universidad Catolica del Peru for more than 15 years. When working with collages on paper or wood she uses acrylics, ink, cuttings of photographic work. Painting is for Cecilia a way to enjoy color and enjoy the process. Cecilia Arrospide's compositions always have a start in nature, mostly flowers, skies or the ocean.
We live in a world of polarities: cold-hot, up-down, strong-weak. Cecilia's art precedes the concept, enjoying the process. Playing with colors and forms is the goal, even though there is always a moment of anguish when she does not know where to continue, then the painting itself tells her where to go. A work is finished when she considers that continuing it will change it.
