“…absence of a kind of sense, as I progressed through the exhibition, that the work was in some way changing/evolving–one’s tempted to say, maturing–in this case that the absence of that kind of left me feeling/questioning basically, does she know what she’s doing?” –GARTH EVANS
“I totally agree with that actually, but at the same time I have to say I’m sort of in awe that she didn’t.” –CELIA GERARD
“Celia, you’re absolutely on the money. That was also my feeling. In some way there’s tremendous respect for this continuing struggle–and, in a way, a kind of sadness.” –GARTH EVANS
