Women, mothers, daughters, sisters and fashion magazines inspire Australian artist Abbey McCulloch. Her work is a delicious infusion of charcoal, wash, oils and vibrant colour.
In 3 words describe your style.
Personal, spontaneous and brave.
What are you currently working on?
A new piece for a Helen Gory Galerie pop-up show at MOP in Sydney.
Where do you live and work right now?
I live and work on the Gold Coast, ironic I know, but it can’t be compared to a big city, it has a rarified vitality in it’s own right and a simple lifestyle that few get to relate to. It’s like being on permanent holiday – or in the 60’s.
What are you reading?
Mostly magazines – French, U.K and U.S Vogue – I don’t have the attention span for books at the moment.
What are you listening to?
Kitty, Daisy and Lewis, early Elvis and for some reason Bob Dylan’s sound track to Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid is really getting me through this winter.
What is the book that changed your life?
‘Will you please be quiet please?’ by Raymond Carver. What is your greatest extravagance? Champagne, magazines and oil paint.
