Cindy Shaoul
"Ride Home around the Lake" Impressionistic Oil Painting on Canvas Ashcan School

2021

$2,000

About

A piece reminiscent of the Ashcan School, Shaoul is able to capture a unique style mimicking the times from the early 20th century. A car drives along a path around a lake, evoking an emotion that is somehow nostalgic. With the wonderful use of light and shadow, we are able to feel the reflection of the lake as the trees descend into the distance reminding us of the work by American artist Bristol. This is an oil on canvas painting and is signed lower left. This painting measures 24 x 30 in Inspired by whimsey and purity of the feminine form, Cindy Shaoul is known for her impressionistic and abstract style. She is best known for her series of Brides, Dripping Dots and Hearts, as well as her Plein air street scenes of quintessential New York spots. Shaoul’s works can be found in permanent collections of 100’s of Corporate and Private Collections around the world. Since her first solo show at the Parsons School of Design in 2009, her work has been showcased internationally in Busan South Korea and has shown at Art Fairs in Miami, Palm Beach, Dallas, and New York. She has had numerous Solo exhibitions and this year has garnered the attention of Actress Lily J. Collins and the like. Her love of painting began at the age of 18 when she was on Thanksgiving break from college. She painted a 9 foot colorful, abstract Mural in her Mothers' art studio and never stopped after that. She later traveled to Hungary and Budapest, picking up inspiration and studying abroad for 2 years, which has connected lifelong experiences that would influence her art today. Upon returning to New York City, she would continue her artistic education at the Art Students League, where she worked under the tutelage of Joseph Peller, Gregg Kreutz, and Tom Torak. She learned techniques from the great masters of impressionism, but it wasn’t until she met renowned street artist Angel Ortiz who previously worked with Keith Haring, that her work would strongly become influenced by 1980s hip-hop and graffiti, propelling her reputation and pushing her into the city’s explosive urban art scene. The collection they worked on was an homage to New York’s streets, where Ortiz began when he first met Haring. This style of creation heavily impacted Shaoul’s technique, expanding her voice of discovery and moving her hand of impressionism not only to traditional subjects of New York City street scenes but to boundary-free expressions in the abstract world. While Shaoul honed her skill at the Students League, in her studio the “Dripping Dots” began a whole new aesthetic. Started from the leftover paint on her pallet, she would clean the paint with her brushes onto a new canvas, not to waste the leftover oils, and soon, the motion of cleaning turned into dots on the canvas. She began connecting the dots with linseed oil and this is how the motif was imprinted. It would become a freeing moment of painting in an abstract way after going to school and learning the impressionist technique. The experience of discovery with color and emotional brushwork became very cathartic, and felt familiar from the times she would collaborate with Ortiz. Shaoul would continue to explore new themes in her work. In 2018 she began the “Brides” series which balances her love for impressionism with an abstract hand. While exploring the purity of the feminine form and the drama of French haute couture, she would create a dialogue between the figurative and the abstract. The Brides would give a new meaning of expression to her practice, and allowed nuances to emerge, demonstrating a whimsical expression of femininity and formality adding a stunning display of understated grandeur to her work. PROVENANCE: The piece is signed lower left corner and will be stamped from Lilac Gallery on the reverse of canvas. Includes a Certificate of Authenticity issued by the Gallery.
