Piece description from the artist
The enchanting colors of late fall at twilight inspired me to create Mansions of the Sky. I tried to capture the emotion of those brilliant colors contrasting against the graying horizon. I used just a bit of gold leaf to portray the shimmer of the late day sunlight on the autumn leaves.
I created this abstract painting using archival-grade oil paint and natural non-toxic solvent on luxuriously thick, 1.5 inch deep gallery wrapped canvas. The edges are painted, so the piece is ready to hang unframed.
The art of Cynthia Ligeros incorporates impressionist elements that reveal an inner landscape to the viewer, an image at once familiar and transcendent. She seeks to explore our place in a world that we have created, yet one which also creates us.
Her paintings often begin with a single driving emotion. From that, an image develops, inspired by the colors, cycles and feelings of the environment.
Sunsets, moonscapes, flowers, the changing seasons — all of these are sources of inspiration, adding richness and layers of complexity to her paintings.
Even industrial spaces and structures figure prominently in her work, contrasting the artifice of the cityscape against the limitless beauty of the sky.
As she paints, she redefines the spaces around us and how they connect to our lives.
Her artwork was recently acquired by Colorado Creative Industries for the newly remodeled Ketchum Arts and Sciences Building at CU Boulder.
Her art has appeared at the Denver Mayor’s Residence, Denver International Airport, the Madden Museum, Denver Botanic Gardens, Professional Artist Magazine, FOX News, and galleries from San Francisco to New York City.
