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.

About The Artist
The art of Cynthia Ligeros incorporates impressionist elements that reveal an inner landscape to the viewer, an image at once familiar and transcendent. She seeks 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. From that, an image develops, inspired by the colors, cycles and feelings of the environment.
Sunsets, moonscapes, flowers, the changing seasons — all of these are sources of inspiration, adding richness and layers of complexity to her paintings.
Even industrial spaces and structures figure prominently in her work, contrasting the artifice of the cityscape against the limitless beauty of the sky.
As she paints, she redefines the spaces around us and how they connect to our lives.
Her art has appeared at the Denver Mayor’s Residence, Denver International Airport, the Madden Museum, Denver Botanical Gardens, Professional Artist Magazine, FOX News, and galleries from San Francisco to New York City.

Hi! I just wanted to let you know that the 48"x48" painting I was telling you about called Pieces of Light is now for sale on UGallery. You can find it on my profile page. Thanks for looking!
Thank you! I'm so glad you like those pieces. I actually just completed a larger painting similar to Ascent and Silent Radiance. My new one is called Pieces of Light. It's 48" x 48". I also do custom oil paintings, so I can create a custom piece to your exact size. Just click the "commissions" button on my UGallery portfolio. Thanks!
I find ascent and silent radiance very interesting. Do you happen to have anything similar, but much larger? Thanks!
Thanks for sharing! I'm glad you like it.
I see penguins. Now geese. Flying away.
Is it Modern Art? Abstract Art? Contemporary Art? The lines between different art movements get blurry around the edges. The definitions of modern art, abstract art and contemporary art can sometimes be a little confusing. Technically, an "abstract" oil painting has no representational elements. It's not a picture of any "thing" you can pick out. Still, it's hard to look at a good painting and not see something in it. The real question is: when you look at a painting, how do you feel? That's how you find a painting you love.
Thank you so much! I'm so thrilled you like it!
We love it! It catches the eye even before you enter room and creates a great atmosphere.
I'm so excited to be featured in Professional Artist Magazine! I'm appearing in the February 2012 issue. It's such a huge honor, since I've read Professional Artist Magazine (formerly Art Calendar) for years. And now I'm in the Artist Spotlight section. The article features two of my paintings, along with my thoughts about how any artist can creatively grow by experimenting with painting abstracts. I also talk about what inspires my art and the things that drew me to paint abstracts in the first place. I'm so excited and grateful for the opportunity to be a part of such an amazing magazine!
Abstract art ideas for your home Don't make the mistake of trying to find a piece of art that exactly matches the colors of your room. Because the paint will never match your room's colors precisely, you might end up with something that looks a little bit off. Instead, shop for a piece that's boldly different. Look for an original oil painting that stands out and really makes your decor come alive.
What do you see in an abstract painting? An abstract oil painting appeals to different people for different reasons. You might see shapes and colors that remind you of a favorite place. Or the composition of the painting might evoke an emotion for you, whether soothing or energizing or uplifting. Whatever the reason, trust your personal taste and go with a painting that you love.
Is abstract art right for you? Buying your first piece of original abstract art can be daunting. But it can also be a lot of fun. The key is to focus on finding a piece of art that you personally enjoy. When you look at the art, your gaze should continually be drawn back into the painting. Don't be intimidated at the prospect of buying original art. Trust what you like and go with it!
Why choose an abstract oil painting? The beauty of abstract art is that it goes with any decor. Whether your taste runs from traditional to contemporary, or your own eclectic mix, you can find the perfect abstract painting for your home. Go ahead, be bold with colors and styles. Feel free to experiment!
A Few of My Abstract Art Oil Painting Techniques Ever wonder how an artist starts with a blank white canvas and transforms it into a beautiful oil painting? I get a lot of questions about my oil painting techniques, because every artist works differently. My method often involves building up my paint in layers, creating a texture that adds depth and character to my abstract art. Sometimes, I'll dig down into the paint to expose deeper layers, showing you glimpses of the painting beneath. Want to know more? I'm always happy to talk about my art. Just ask me!
I'm so glad that Fragment found a good home!
