Cindy Press is a visual artist living and working in New York. She was born and raised in Philadelphia where she graduated with a BFA in Fashion Illustration from Moore College Of Art And Design. Cindy had a successful career as a fashion designer working with artists such as Peter Max, best known for his work in the 60’s, she interpreted his paintings into wearable art. Cindy has recently returned to her art practice after taking time off to raise her two daughters. “My original goal was to create paintings that are simply striking and beautiful, getting back to my roots of fashion illustration. As I started my process of reinvention I found myself drawn to images of women that are edgy and sexy. Collecting clippings from magazines and editorials as inspiration, I work in a realistic manner depicting portraits and figures of females. When I begin to work I notice a peculiar shift in my thought process. I am no longer concerned about the beauty of the image but instead how it speaks to me, what does the expression or pose represent to me? My focus changes entirely as I consider a history of experiences while I paint. I think about my life, my family, and friends. The relationships, the love, the hurt, the anguish and my own personal conflicts come into play. There is so much more behind a person’s appearance. Through the cult of beauty in contemporary mass media I am investigating the psychological complexity of women.”
Cindy’s work has been included in group exhibitions nationally and is in private collections around the globe. She has been featured in Saatchiart’s printed catalogs, several online collections curated by Rebecca Wilson and hand picked to exhibit in ...
