This Celtic Art Card is my contribution to Oxford Department for Continuing Education course ‘Who are the Celts?’ Sept-Dec. 2017. At the end of a demanding study week the participants were challenged to make their own Celtic art, a drawing, woodwork, or poem, whatever your prefer. I had a hard time leaving the Celtic Art and Celtic Religion study- week behind me. I could spend so much more time on the subjects that are so close to my heart.
I managed to finish my Celtic Art project a fortnight later because it was a lot of drawing. Strangely enough, I was always in awe when I saw Celtic art but I was never challenged or commissioned to make Celtic art. I had to remove my anxiety for too much rigid mathematical organization (the patterns and swirls) and focus on the hidden mythology, faces and animals. Although I love Celtic art, I have always feel resistance to make it as it seems to limit artistic expression to its theme as the patterns are strictly organized and repetitive. The article on the enchantment of technology inspired me too to embrace a geometrical challenge for making Celtic patterns. I enjoyed the challenge!
One can go to YouTube to see the work in progress:
