About

 

Cindy Stapper is a contemporary artist who lives and works in rural Northern New Mexico.  Her paintings are held in collections throughout the United States.

 

 

 

 

 

The primary inspiration for my work is the beauty and power of the natural world. My paintings reflect my fascination with elemental forces, and the unexpected associations and subtle contrasts present in nature. My pieces are built slowly using oil, cold wax, powdered pigments and natural materials that are layered and excavated to reveal hidden depths of color and texture. My recent work is a rumination on presence and absence, the power of landscape to reveal unknown aspects of ourselves, and those landscapes that have worked on us profoundly long after we’ve left them, becoming a permanent part of our personal geography.    – Cindy Stapper
