Celtic Circle Of Strength by Myra Carter
ARTIST NOTES: The Celtic circle collection is inspired by the circles used in Celtic art. The Celts were not the only culture to use circles and spirals. They were however one of the first to take primitive symbols and transform them in to art. They went on to create intricate designs intertwined with circular shapes and spirals that were unique and beautiful. Early Celts most likely used the circle to represent the sun and possibly such concepts as eternity and continuity. The Celtic Circle Collection explores the concept of a pared back circle. A statement in simplicity without much adornment. An artistic representation of the way the circle may have been in its fundamental form. Recently exhibited at the Knox Art Show.

Myra is a contemporary abstract artist with a passion for colour. Diversity is the cornerstone of her work. Myra’s creativity is sparked by the natural world and those influences can often be seen in her work. As a child, Myra came from Scotland to live in Melbourne with her family. Her previous career was as a psychologist. She feels this has enhanced her artistic career as she seeks to express emotion through her work on canvas. Myra sees painting as a way to celebrate life using bold colours or to create a soothing experience with softer hues. Her works continue to be exhibited in a variety of Art Shows and elsewhere.
