The Bathers an animation by Cecilia Reeve with music by Red Berry / by Theresa Kneppers

We have commissioned contemporary artist Cecilia Reeve to respond to work in the collection. She selected the paintings of Cliff Holden as her starting point. Red Berry designed a sound piece to accompany the final animation. You can watch the full piece here.

Cecilia Reeve is London based artist and animator who has recently graduated studying Illustration from the University of Brighton. Cecilia’s artwork focuses in on themes around femininity and are a way for the artist to capture emotions that are perhaps harder to describe with words. Using animation and drawing as a means to do this, her work often has a surreal quality that draws inspiration from the everyday world.

Red Berry is a first year student at LSBU, doing Music & Sound Design. Their passion for both sound and music has stretched across their entire life, with over 10 years worth of amateur electronic music production behind them. Their music is available to stream for free here.
