Colleen Guiney is an artist based in the coastal town of Port Fairy. She completed a Diploma of Visual Arts at RMIT in 2009 and has exhibited consistently since then.
Highlights include solo exhibitions at Boom Gallery in 2017, Pigment Gallery in 2009 and First Site Gallery in 2009. She has been a finalist in art prizes including the Cambridge Studio Gallery Life Abstracted, the MLC Acquisitive Art Exhibition and the Williamstown Contemporary Art Prize.
Colleen draws on her visual perspective and experience in design in everything she does. Her paintings are colourful and emotionally charged with influence from her surroundings; they reflect shapes and aesthetics that are linked to her everyday routines and the nature she immerses herself in daily. Alongside her artistic practice she operates Drift House – an award winning boutique hotel – with her partner.
Modern Times respectfully acknowledges the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation as the traditional custodians of the land on which we gather, share and celebrate local creative practice. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging, and acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders as the first people of Australia. They have never ceded sovereignty, and remain strong in their enduring connection to land and culture.
