Cynthia Daignault

Cynthia Daignault's paintings focus on how unreliable our own conscious narration of reality is. By isolating specific instances of the world over time (clouds moving across the sky, for example), Daignault shakes the foundation of an absolute perception while also revealing how beautiful those uncertain moments can be. After working as an assistant to major contemporary artists including Sean Landers, Josephine Meckseper and Kara Walker, she debuted at White Columns in 2011 with an exhibition that examined methods of presentation and the artifice of reality, flattening both apparatus and image onto the same plane. She has since had exhibitions at Zach Feuer, Lisa Cooley Gallery, American Contemporary, The FLAG Art Foundation (New York), the Brooklyn Museum, and Wasserman Projects (Birmingham, MI). She has published two limited edition art books, ‘CCTV’ and ‘I love you more than one more day,’ and in 2011 was awarded the Rema Hort Mann Foundation grant.
