Space for Divine Intervention: Art by Cindy Snapp

Today’s featured artist is Kentucky-based painter Cindy Snapp. Cindy creates paintings that are highly intuitive and deliberately abstract, while leaving space for divine intervention.

I enjoy the overall cohesiveness of Cindy’s portfolio. The artist uses a similar color scheme in the majority of her paintings, a palette of greenish blues highlighted with warm pink tones that seem to mimic the look of the sky at dawn on a clear day.  Cindy’s elongated, dynamic brush marks come together in layers on the surface of each canvas, making abstracted fan-like forms that allow space for the viewer’s own interpretations.

Cindy’s paintings put an interesting emphasis on the artist’s hand – the artist herself first began painting as a way of working through grief, and the meditative physicality of the process is visible in each piece.
