The poetry of body is captured through lens, transmitted to digital canvas and through careful arrangement of its bends and folds developed a piece of art. Such as the impressionist painter’s of yesteryear whose little brushstrokes caressed the canvas as a part of a grand scheme, Cecelia Webber’s masterpieces are having the brushstrokes replaced with tiny images of human bodies – straight or contorted but always orchestrated seamlessly to tell a story. Born in New Hampshire and current resident of Los Angeles, Cecelia’s art is a telling commentary of the intricacies of human body and mind as hardly seen before.

Armed with her knowledge of three dimensional design and skills in ceramics Nuala O’Donovan delved into the mystical world of patterns and geometry and found herself merrily lost amidst the treasures of the universe. Every now then she creates ceramic sculptures inspired by the elements of nature blended with the sparkle of her own imagination to have the audience simply gaze at those beautiful creations in sheer amazement. Galileo Galilei in The Assayer (Il Saggiatore) wrote that ‘(The universe) is written in the language of mathematics, and its characters are triangles, circles, and other geometric figures.’ Nuala’s sculptures are apt reproductions directly from the pages of that macrocosmic book.
