STATEMENT | BIO
My paintings are intentional contrasts, a blend of deliberate shapes and expressive brush marks. I use color, line and texture to explore the joining of opposites — paint strokes, diverse paper fragments and linear marks merge to express a strong connection among disconnected things.
My creative process is both planned and spontaneous. I love mixing colors and creating new color palettes inspired by aerial landscapes, urban structures, geographic earth patterns, and micro-nature. I use acrylic paints, inks, pencil and pastel on canvas, sometimes on heavy watercolor paper, adding and scraping away the layers. I frequently add geometric shapes, repeating patterns and script-like marks to my art. Fine cross-hatched lines and paper fragments are hallmarks of my current work, unifying elements that counter or complement the developing painting.
I like structure in my life and in my abstractions, a point of familiarity within the ambiguous. I feel this gives each viewer a personal way to think about and connect with my paintings — a way to find art to love for a lifetime.
Abstract painter Cynthia Coldren studied fine art as an undergraduate student before completing her BAS in communications and management, supporting a corporate communications career. While her early work embraced photo-realism, she transitioned to an abstract style over the years, evolving a strong textural focus.
Cynthia lives in the Dallas metroplex. She has received recognition and awards in recent art exhibitions, gallery shows and juried competitions both online and in North Texas. She is a member of the Texas Artist Coalition (TAC), the Visual Arts Guild of Frisco (VAGF), the Richardson Civic Art Society (RCAS), the Visual Arts League of Allen (VALA) and the International Society of Experimental Artists (ISEA).
