Many of my paintings are inspired by the movement and the ambiguity of Celtic art. With its unique ‘now you see it, now you don’t’ style, that keeps the viewer questioning what they are actually seeing, their art moves as if liquid.
British Iron Age art is intrinsically linked to the belief system of this time, the idea of the Axis Mundi and it’s three tiers, the upper middle and lower worlds. These levels could be accessed at special times and turning points in the calendar – dawn, dusk, the equinox, longest and shortest days and the cycle of the moon, full, waning. At these turning points cracks appear and supernatural spirits that inhabit the other levels break through.
