Cynda Valle chronicles human life from the unique perspective of this time, this culture and place, and her own personal viewpoint within it. From this vantage point, she finds the most ordinary moments of domestic circumstances and infuses them with undercurrents of surrealism, luminosity and pattern. She then captures these moments on canvas with oil paint, in order to remind the viewer of the fragile poignancy of life.
These paintings are done with a traditional, labor intensive oil glazing and underpainting technique. Focal points within the painting can have up to 40 thin glaze layers, and take several months worth of work in one small area.
