On Feb. 1, the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center presented a solo exhibition by Fort Myers artist Cindy Jane.
Titled Morphic Adaptations, it features a series of large-scale works that delve into a world of transgenic and geomorphic landscapes made up of biomorphic and abstract shapes that merge terrestrial, aquatic and celestial environments.
The exhibit opened during Art Walk and continues through Feb. 22.
PHOTO SPECIAL TO THE CITIZEN
The Impenetrable Room.
In Cindy Jane's latest paintings, she creates an ambiguous terrain with forms reminiscent of anatomic and botanic structures.
Motifs of birth and decay combine with fragments of modern culture and representations of the human figure while organic formations take center stage with lyrical eloquence and compositional mastery.
Figurative and erotic elements help to shape a futuristic and ecological narrative.
Her paintings take us on a sinuous path into what seems to be the regenerative aftermath of a new world.
These poignant and evocative new works are as complex and enigmatic as the artist herself.
Born in 1969, Jane attended Edison College for drawing, basic design, and art history. Her paintings range in theme from the highly personal to the socio-political, and more recently, the metaphysical.
She draws inspiration from subconscious experience as it relates to the human condition, current events, and evolutionary processes.
Cindy Jane's work has been shown throughout Southwest Florida. Having recently been awarded Best in Show during daas gallery's Skin 2011 exhibition, and with her upcoming solo show at the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center, she is quickly becoming recognized as an artist of distinction.
The Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center is located at 2301 First Street in the downtown Fort Myers River District.
