Cynthia Foley

Cadillac, Michigan

With pen, with scissors, I draw myself into another creature and look outward.

Based on research and intuitive instances, I imagine my relocation, my dislocation, my appearance,  relative to plant and animal beings.


Drawing from observation, I record objects and faces with direct eye-to-hand rendering. I use digital means to resize my drawings and manipulate combinations.


To render the objects that become my images, I compile fragments of cut and torn paper. Thicknesses build towards the viewer as multiple layers provide a slight relief to the overall surface.


I begin each work with a specific configuration in mind, but always experience surprise

in the process as the outcome changes considerably from my start-up idea.
