Cecilia started out with painting, but now works foremost with video and animation. She manages to treat difficult subjects, often from a personal, feminist perspective with a sharp sense of humour. Her artistic expression stretches from the play with simplified, raw lines, in Disco for instance from 1997, to the use of the animation media in a more sophisticated way, as in Emblem from 2001. Cecilia’s video works are shown frequently worldwide and has received recognition in the art and film world alike.
