Cally Buchanan

Cally works in Edinburgh and since completing Leith School of Art's painting course in 2017 where she was awarded the Painting Prize, Cally was offered a Scholarship to attend the intensive three month drawing course at the Royal Drawing School in London.

With Cally's background being in Architectural Design and her eye for composition, colour and form this allows her to focus her attention on qualities of perception and the soul of her work. There is an elegance of mood, and an uneasiness of vision because all too often the flaws and damage of life are exposed.

Cally strives to articulate the instability and ambiguity of identity, playing with ideas of absence and ultimately encouraging the viewer to consolidate and complete the works. Cally's paintings have sold to international collectors.
