daring and beautiful art

. . . . . . .

Dear Friends,

Sorry, we're closed now.

I could not keep gallery open for more then one reason, but the biggest one was me. I did not feel I was strong (and smart) to contine. I needed rest: do nothing time, be closer to Earth, Sea, Sun, Sky, my cat Bikini and my dog Hana.

Do I miss it? Yes! I miss our dinners, painting Easter eggs, my freedom to do with our space whatever I wanted to do, I miss people, soup and bread openings... I miss our little "community".

Do I miss ART? Not now. I am fine having my hands dirty, working in my garden.

What I do now? Hmmm, little art, lots of cooking...

Who I am now? Rebel, definitely!

So, be well my friends and thank you for letting me love you. I know we'll see each other, sonner or later.

-- Yours, always, Ewa

Cyndi Wish, Watching Citizen Kane on 9/11 collage

"Watching Citizen Kane on 9/11," Collage, 2014

Until a few months ago, I couldn't justify making new art. It came out of a combination of environmental concern (where does all this art go?) and feeling that art-making was oppressive. An artist is blessed and cursed with a creative drive which gets them into their studio whether they like it or not. I stopped liking it, so last September, I looked my creative work-ethic in the eye and said: "Get off my back. I'm going to go watch football."

My studio became a storage space for the art I have made over the past 25 years. In January, I unlocked my studio to put my bike in it, and saw two of my old prints overlapping each other on the floor. One I had made at 18, one I had made at 27. I liked thinking about them talking with each other.

These new collages are comprised of pieces of prints I have produced throughout my art-making life. As I dis-assembled prints, and re-assembled them into collages, the elements formed associative meanings, dada-esque narratives, and absurd contradictions. The collages are a conglomeration of accumulated interests, emotions, and images.

I hope you like them.

I fell in love with mixing colours.  When I work in the print shop I begin with only the basics – red, yellow, blue, black, and white – and since 1991 have been on a mission to never mix the same colour twice.

Similarly my favorite way to work with printmaking is to take a vocabulary of images, stencils, and matrices and to arrange them on paper so that they build multiple layers of associative meaning.  In this way, I use printmaking more as a way to vary repetition, rather than to make uniform multiples.  Eventually a visual metaphor will emerge.  I think often about a famous quote from Jean Cocteau which says, “The greatest masterpiece in literature is only a dictionary out of order.”

Conceptually I am happiest when I feel like my work combines quirky with transcendental.  Like when you laugh at something you are not sure you are supposed to.
