When an artist walks into a room, the energy changes. In An Artist Walks In Series, I set out to recreate the feeling of walking into a crowded room and completely immersing myself into conversations between shape and color. I am there to observe the interactions, documenting how shape and color carefully play off of each other’s energy and the effect this has on adjacent shapes and colors.
“A good conversation, one in which you are completely immersed to the point of time not existing, can have a profound affect. These conversations, even when many times removed, still carry subtle and beautiful remnants of their history. The depth of which, to a degree, alters one’s DNA, affecting all future conversations.”-Cyndie
When I paint I use three main colors (Cadmium Red, Cadmium Yellow, and Cobalt Blue,) two lesser-used secondary colors (Alizarine Crimson and Phthalo Blue,) and Titanium White. I don’t introduce new tubes of color to the conversation, but instead rely on the group at hand to cary and grow the conversation. I am a consummate blender, experimenting with combinations that are far stronger than preset pigments squeezed from a tube. And by using a limited number of pigments, I’ve ensured a common bond, a bloodline that binds all of the variations seen in each piece.
