In Cynthia's new work gestural big brush strokes run into dense repetitive areas of bold color - challenging the flow by their placement. Her willingness to switch materials contribute to stops and starts to emphasize a point. Introduction of lozenge like shapes drop from the top to the bottom of the picture plane and interrupt the underlying primary movement. Both gently and boldly they reveal themselves. Like bombs they carry weight both visually and emotionally as they alternately float and drop redefining space and altering our perceptions. They force us to see what happens when an opposing force is introduced.
