Cydney Parkes | Featured Artist

April 2, 2024

"As an artist, my chosen medium is concrete—a seemingly rigid and unyielding material. My creative journey delves deep into the human experience, where vulnerability is often regarded as a weakness. Through my art, I aim to challenge this perception and redefine vulnerability as a source of strength and authenticity. I invite viewers to reflect on their own vulnerability and resilience.

I hope that my work evokes a sense of contemplation, inviting viewers to embrace their own imperfections and discover the strength that arises from acknowledging and accepting vulnerability. In a society obsessed with unattainable ideals, my art seeks to remind us that true beauty lies in embracing our authentic selves and finding strength in our fragility.

Join me on this artistic journey as we explore the delicate dance between vulnerability and resilience, guided by the philosophy of Wabi-Sabi. Let us celebrate the beauty found within the cracks, the imperfect brushstrokes of life, and the profound strength that emerges when we embrace our true selves." - Cydney Parkes

In addition to her use of raw materials and neutral colors, Cydney Parkes' art also incorporates elements of nature. She often uses materials such as wood, stone, and natural fibers to create a connection between her art and the natural world.

Her focus on wabi-sabi, the Japanese aesthetic of finding beauty in imperfection, is evident in the intentional use of cracks and uneven textures in her pieces. By embracing imperfection and incorporating the natural world into her art, Cydney creates pieces that feel organic and coexist harmoniously with their surroundings.

"Whats your name?” It was always after a moment of hesitation that I’d look up and reply, “its Cydney with a C.” It's the phrase that has escaped my mouth more than any other. In fact, there was a time in which I had grown very tired of uttering those words; but that time has long passed. Cydney with a See is no longer only my introduction, but the foundation of my vision as an artist and the cornerstone of my operating philosophy as a person.'

With a keen eye for detail and a unique artistic vision, Cydney brings creativity and passion to every project. Please reach out to us for more information or inquiries about commissioning artwork by Cydney Parkes.
