I came across Agnes Cecile’s work after an email from Zukuri UnLtd, a great fashion company that I am soon going to be writing for that connects with my ethos when it comes to the world of fashion. Cecile is a visual artist from Rome and works in watercolours, oil and acrylic, ink and varnish. Her work reminds me of a piece I did a few years ago in ink, but hers is of a much higher standard.
I love the way her paintings either use monochrome, or a bright palette of colours. I feel that the fluidity of the medium connects with the written work and inspires me to continue my visual art alongside my writing. The use of line drippings reminds me of a period where I was inspired by Ian Davenport whilst studying at Central Saint Martins. I love the expressive quality of the colours and her unique style that is clear despite the variety of materials used.
I’m very interested in contraditions, and things that seem opposite, which I can see being explored here. The work is both delicate, and messy. It is simple, yet complex. The line is natural and precise, but leads to an explosion of colour and emotion. Visit Cecile’s website to see more.
