Cindy Wright

Cindy Wright's startlingly rich, dense and lifelike paintings and drawings show a dark fascination with the macabre. Her works portray surprisingly intimate and detailed views of death and decay, forcing the viewer to confront a beauty that they might normally shun.

LOVE! Let me tell you, I've been mounting actual butterflies and they are so fragile that yes, sometimes it's as if their wing tips turn to dust.

I dont like anything dead :(
On the weekends when I am outside, I see a lot of beetles and bugs around dead and it makes me sad.
