Cindy Avroch - Artistʼs Statement “Anyone who says you canʼt see a thought, simply doesnʼt know art.”
Wynetka Ann Reynolds, zoologist and university administrator.
There came a time I had to decide whether to become a professional dancer or an artist. I knew I could probably dance until the age of 30. I realized I could paint and sculpt forever. I chose “artist.”
I begin each piece from the inside out, from a feeling that I have about something or someone in my life, somewhere Iʼd rather be or have been. I am in awe of all the beauty that surrounds us in this world. From the lines of a beautiful building, to the sea, the fields of Provence, or the smile of a child that has mastered something difficult.
When I work with paint I am reminded that my colors, are my words. The layers upon layers build paragraphs that begin to tell a story. When I work with sculpture, I am reminded that my textures, curves and finishes, speak for me. These pieces not only send a message, but show how my body is feeling as well. I feel that when my work is going well, my thoughts are conveyed clearly as if words on a piece of paper. My favorite tool are my hands, my favorite material is anything Iʼm working with at the time. Although I may use a variety of materials and processes, my result is always consistent.
When people see my work, Iʼd like them to identify with my happiness and my conflicts and remember that communication, whether in words or art is precious. I know a piece is done when what is inside of me, is now in front of me. My thought and emotion has now taken on artistic form.
