Cynthia Grow is a visual artist whose work explores the interstices between art and language. Influenced by her studies in literature, she works alternately between abstract paintings and text-based conceptual works on paper. She harnesses the same sources of inspiration for both – language and memory – and achieves an overall aesthetic signature marked by strong senses of mood, poetry, and atmosphere.
Cynthia studied painting at Accademia d’Arte in Florence, Italy and has completed projects at residencies throughout Italy and Spain, as well as seminars at New York Studio School, National Academy School of Fine Art, and Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. In addition to studio training, she completed a program in Modern and Contemporary Art, Connoisseurship, & the Art Market at Christie's Education New York and holds a Master's degree with a concentration in Modern Arts & Literature.
Cynthia has exhibited works in New York, Los Angeles, and Miami as well as galleries and cultural centers in Europe including Florence, Venice, Rome, Madrid, and Barcelona. Her work has been featured in prizes, publications, and exhibitions across both continents. For the past decade, she has lived and worked between the U.S. and Catalunya. She recently relocated to her native Florida, working between Gainesville and when possible, extended periods in Barcelona.
