EYE OF WONDER

"My passion is to paint ecstatic energy. Its force is as intimate as my breath, with impact, wonder, curiosity, and awe. The creative state moves me beyond painting external appearances to express inner states of being. Rhythmic strokes of Light open the sky, creating a field of color in my mind.

I employ several techniques to create a synthesis of spontaneous abandon and architectural form. The compositions come together in rhythmic counterpoint. Unusual textured impasto acrylics dance in concert with sensuous oil lines, and luminous, luscious colors, only achieved by oil glazing.

Art takes me to Life's depth, mystery and eloquence. It opens the senses to the Heart and the awareness of Self as Embodiments of Love; a dynamic expression co-creating in a harmonious universe." - Kynthia

"When Kynthia goes into the Visionary Surrealist area of painting, I get feelings of what I would call 'wise peace.' There is a solidness of clear vision or clear insight; and it's visualized through what she makes. It's quite pure because if you don't have it within, you can't put it without. So she does that and evidently is able to visualise it, so that others can see it. When I behold that, it's a visual bliss."

Former curator of the Oakland Museum
& San Francisco Museum of Modern Art

KYNTHIA AT CODY CONFERENCE

" At this time, more than any other, humanity faces the impinging reality of Contact with other life forms. Their pregnant thoughts of this encounter are everywhere. As we enter into the Paradigm Shift, we seek an understanding on how to engage these new relationships with new terms. There is no guidance manual, so we turn to the artist and other prescient thinkers of our time, who are ale to project self into such an encounter and share that information with the public.

Kynthia's Art is important because she is actively contributing to world peace by revealing the possible nature of a post-paradigm world. Her work is psychoactive by nature, notable for its multi-dimensionality and its deeply evocative, archetypal imagery. Viewing her art, we experience layers of reality from within and without that exist outside of the mainstream culture.

Driven to expand our world-view models, Kynthia has devoted major portions of her life to the question of Life on Mars, for little or no compensation, to pursue truth in the face of ridicule, denial, disparagement and subversion. Her courage, along with those researchers who dare to push the envelope, will one day be recognized as a moajor factor in the Paradigm Shift."
