"I’ve always been driven to create harmony in my environment, working intuitively with colour and form to create what I feel is a perfect balance. The juxtaposition of shapes and the power of negative space in creating a narrative is something I continue to explore in whatever medium I work with. By placing simple forms and soothing tones in harmonious relationships, I aim to reflect the essence of simple beauty found in the everyday and create a sense of calm in the viewers’ subconscious."
Ces McCully is a contemporary artist originally from Melbourne. McCully’s text-based work utilises chance in colour relationships through her abstract, geometric paintings. She draws on both autobiographical and societal elements, which are formative in their own way, resulting in minimalist forms and a restrained palette. Her works often express confession and secret thoughts, giving expression to our ‘shadow-selves’, challenging the false face of our online personas.
