Cindy's art--maximal and eclectic--reflects her experiences as a world traveler and her time spent living in such places as Spain, France, Japan, Morocco, Colombia, and Burkina Faso. This exposure to other countries and cultures has led her to embrace diversity and universal connectivity--two prevalent themes in her art. Stylistically, she employs a technique that looks like collage, but is an entirely painted surface, the result being a sort of visual paradox as well as a personal scrapbook from her immediate and past environments. The juxtaposition of textures, colors, shapes, and the contrast of such ideas as feminine/masculine, organic/geometric, literal/abstract, all abound. This act of interfacing opposing fragments of information suggests the territory that lies between, so paradoxically, the fragment becomes the whole. These scraps, part of the daily bombardment of the digital age media blitz and its subsequent deterioration of sustained thought, also allow for limitless possibilities to connect.
