Writhing and whirling, twisting and turning, Celtic knotwork designs combine wild and chaotic motion with order, symmetry, and stillness.
It's a kind of contradiction, isn't it? But there's order within chaos and there's chaos within order throughout the natural world. So who's to say that our art ought to be any different?
You'd get no argument from the ancient artists of Ireland, Britain, and Scotland; or from the Art Nouveau-influenced Celtic Revival artists of the early 20th century; and you'll certainly get none from me, as you can see by exploring these pages.
