“Céline Achour’s painting lends itself to all imaginations and invites you to a journey to the land of dreams. (…) She succeeds in going beyond the traditional compartmentalisation of genres and conveys a spiritual message to us: the solitude of a being absorbed by his activity, the pictorial rendering being the expression of his quest or his inner silence. The faces are not smooth, they also mark doubts, uncertainties and anxieties, they are the expression of the whole range of the human psyche. (…) Light effects and colour highlights punctuate these tonalities, as if they were nested in a strange aura. If one is content with a simple distracted glance, one will not detect all the quintessence, the canvas could appear smooth, even distanced or hieratic; it is nothing of the sort, these faces have a soul, an almost carnal life, a great psychological density”.
