Paintings in Cyphers' Animal Spirits have, “compositional qualities that reflect spaces of weightlessness and expansive consciousness with a focus on predatory birds” as a visual reference striving to reach a plane of gravitational and mental freedom.”
Peggy Cyphers’ painted characters and landscapes vibrate in dialogues of rhythm and repetition that influence sensory perception. Her surfaces recall color field, where abstract forms operate in a psychological dialogue of association – congestion and vast span, hyper-speed and recognizable icons. Cyphers’ painting is automatic writing - a stream of consciousness between geological, primordial and cultural time. Brush marks dominate her work.
These new works by Cyphers create a sense of wonder and awe for the viewer and will be accompanied by “Stacked Waterfalls”, a film installation which will be viewable from the front of the gallery, dusk till dawn everyday. “Stacked Waterfalls” is a response to encounters with powerful forces and will create an environment of mystery and change the context of the environment of the show.
