Oil paintings by New York based artist, Cindy Press.

“Tuning out the noise of the news and world these days to focus on the fun and frivolous”

The work of Cindy Press celebrates women by exploring the connection between fashion and our personal identity.

Press considers how style reflects how we engage with the world around us. “Clothes are a personal decision and what we choose to wear is the way we express ourselves”. Her work serves as a metaphor for how we engage with the world around us. Often it’s a gesture or pose I am interested in, it’s there that I see the history of figure or portrait painting”.

Her style is heavily influenced by contemporary fashion photography. While her signature is the way she transforms black and white oil paint on canvas Press likes to surprise with the occasional sprinkling of color added to the mix. Her process is evolving as she photographs her own subjects and merges them with new images to create the reference for her work.
