Ces McCully

"Sometimes I want to highlight truths that are common but not spoken of, often things I find a little humorous. Sometimes it’s simply cathartic for me to put it out into the world. And sometimes it’s just something that I think people need to hear."

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.
