I could marvel all day at how Cynthia Guild captures light, but what I love most about her work is the way she takes banal subject matter and makes it beautiful. These oil paintings are actually inspired by surveillance video from the Connecticut Department of Transporation's webcam. In her own words Cynthia says, "I like the fact that these are real cars and trucks in real time on real roads with real people living their lives. These paintings represent the poetry of this night, or this life – each with its own individual existence, yet each a part of a larger design." Cynthia received both her BFA and MFA in Printmaking from UMASS Amherst. She exhibits extensively throughout the region and has also taught classes and workshops at numerous colleges including Bennington College, Rhode Island School of Design and Mount Holyoke.
