Césan is a self trained painter with over 20 years of studio practice and meditation. Formal study has focused on development of from the wrist up artistic intuition and includes a BA in Religious Studies and Art History from McMaster University, and a diploma from the Anna Wise Institute, San Francisco in Biofeedback Meditation. Extensive travel, from prehistoric sacred sites of the East, to contemporary museums of the West, is an ongoing foundational pedagogy.
Cesan's residency project is a series of abstracted depictions of the sun and her relationship with the sun on wood panels using solar pyrography combined with other mixed media. Images of the sun are made by the sun, burnt outdoors into wood panels over hundreds of hours by focusing the sun’s rays through a hand held magnifying glass.
