Cindy Wright

Baconcube

Cindy Wright paints large-scale portraits and still-life oil paintings that play at the intersection between figuration and abstraction, creating formal portraits that echo the pictorial history of traditional British painting. Wright’s portraits of friends and art world personalities are intermixed with canvases in which fresh meat turns the paint into rather abstract and unfathomable paintings.
