About The Artwork

Acrylic and gesso on wood panel My larger-scale abstract works – often muted, hazy suggested landscapes and seascapes, both real and imagined, typically begin with phrases of poetry that deeply resonate with me – phrases that create a visceral reaction. In rather not so elegant terms, words that quite literally send a buzz up my spine or a chill down my arm. The words arrive long before the painting. Repetition. Reduction. Minimalism. I typically use two or three colors at most in these works – only varying the tint and shade. Working to capture shadow and light, I paint in thin washes. Multiple layers are reduced, wiped away, and then painted over, layer by layer, again and again. With thin washes of paint, the wood grain eventually seeps through, becoming an integral part of the final work. Irregularities in the grain, the occasional blemish, are transformed into something with a certain imperfect beauty, making each piece unique. The final results evoke ethereal, dreamy emotional landscapes – each work a small meditation, a visual poem. Notes: Hardware included & assembled - ready to hang. Sides are painted (in varying colors as the painting). Signed on the reverse. Lightly varnished for u.v. protection. Ships from United States.

Cynthia's work explores the interstices between art and language. Influenced by her studies in Literature, she works alternately between abstract paintings and text-based works on paper. She harnesses the same sources of inspiration for both – language and memory – and achieves an overall aesthetic signature marked by strong senses of mood, poetry, and atmosphere. Cynthia studied painting at Accademia d’Arte in Florence, Italy and has completed projects at residencies throughout Italy and Spain, as well as seminars at New York Studio School, National Academy School of Fine Art, and Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. In addition to studio training, she completed a program in Modern and Contemporary Art, Connoisseurship & the Art Market at Christie's Education New York. She has worked for a blue-chip gallery in New York as well as the Editorial Department of Art Books at Princeton University Press and holds a Master's degree with a concentration in Modern Arts & Literature. Cynthia has exhibited works in New York, Los Angeles, and Miami as well as galleries and cultural centers in Europe including Florence, Venice, Rome, Madrid, and Barcelona. Her work has been featured in prizes, publications, and exhibitions across both continents. She recently moved to her native Florida, working between Gainesville and (when possible) extended periods in Barcelona. **Please click 'Collections' tab to view/sort work by Series.**
