About

This painting depicts a Kiss made from broken pieces of glass. Each piece of glass was hand designed, creating a mosaic effect on canvas. In 2011, artist Cindy Shaoul endured a car robbery, following which she experienced ongoing sensations of sadness, anger, frustration, and chaos. When the time came to replace her windshield glass, she thought to herself: “This glass is beautiful, why would I clean up the pieces to just throw it away? I can do something beautiful with this!” In this collection, Cindy’s goal was to transform trauma and the negativity we associate broken glass with, to beauty, art, creativity, and inspiration. She wanted to deliver the message that broken glass can come to symbolize survival and triumph as much as it can danger and misfortune. “If we really dig around, and put the pieces back together, we can create art.” In this collection, this is precisely what Cindy did. She turned a potentially traumatic life event into motivation to deliver her message artistically. “In every potential loss or dangerous situation, there’s also a potential for triumph and beauty.” Having built a diverse body of work since her early career ranging from portraits to abstract paintings of the universe, Cindy has unearthed a new collection rooted deeply in the study of natural shapes, textures, and a new medium: glass. Having traveled and lived in different parts of the world, her experiences have brought new weight to the ideas which are exhibited in her works today: a connection to simple details and earth like materials. Cindy captures moments in each piece that are tranquil, raw, and detached. These new works exude light, a grounded backdrop, and hints of earth like gold materials which resemble concrete and stone; close to the nature of both the natural earth and manmade elements of New York City. PROVENANCE: Lilac Gallery Collection. This original artwork includes a Certificate of Authenticity issued by the Gallery. The piece is signed by the artist and stamped from Lilac Gallery on its verso. EXHIBITION HISTORY: Lilac Gallery NYC, “BREAKING THE GLASS” Solo Show, May 15 - June 4 2014.
