Artist Celia Morgan from Glen Davis exhibited a series of exquisite paintings and drawing in Rylstone last Saturday. Her colourful works look familiar at first, but become very deep as you look into them and begin to appreciate something hidden.
Celia likens it to delving into a mystical space. She gets her inspiration during twilight walks. Some of her paintings have a sphere, which signifies a trigger point beyond reality. Her work pays reverence to Mother Earth and is an exhibition well worth viewing.
