"Luminous Night" is part of my Circle series. Circles are a powerful inspiration for me. In my work, they symbolize the dynamic and endlessly changing cycles of the self, the world, and life.
I created this abstract painting using archival-grade oil paint, gold leaf and natural non-toxic solvent on luxuriously thick 1.5 inch deep gallery wrapped canvas. The painting continues around the sides and the work comes ready to hang.
Artist Cynthia Ligeros reinvents contemporary abstract art with inexhaustible creativity. She incorporates impressionist sentiments that reveal inner transcendent landscapes to the viewer. “Art can have a powerful organic and spiritual presence,” says Cynthia. "I seek to explore our place in a world that we have created, yet one which also creates us." Her paintings often begin with a single driving emotion—colors, cycles, and feelings of the environment heavily shape what her compositions develop into. As she paints, she redefines the spaces around us and how they connect to our lives. She draws inspiration from nature against contrasting artifices of industrial spaces. Currently residing in Colorado, she has a special fondness for the breathtaking Rocky Mountains. In all her work, she tucks a hint of blue skies hidden somewhere.
