Hermione Macmillan takes inspiration for her paintings from her immediate urban environment.
“I see commercial objects and buildings as abstract shapes and colours and repetitive design. These qualities draw me to my choice in subject matter: from the bright, bold, contemporary range of colours and varying shapes seen in commercial objects in department stores to modern architecture outside. I am exploring the combination of these objects with the geometry, shapes and angles of architectural structures due to the potential this holds for abstraction. My paintings seek to elevate the ordinary into the extraordinary. ”
