Cynthia Schildhauer exhibits her colorful, multilayered paintings around a theme of love and birds.
Cynthia Schildhauer’s exhibit, “For Love (and Birds)” features her colorful, mulitilayered surface paintings. Cynthia sees the birds in her paintings as messengers for love. “To me, they represent ascension, flight, and freedom,” says Cynthia. “They are social, they are committed parents, and they are colorful. Birds can sing and dance, they fight and some cry out loud. They play games and they steal things. Birds have compelling names: the Mourning Dove, the Laughing Gull, or the Lark. To me, they captivate and demand a closer look, a quality I know is also true about love.”
