rumba presents iPad Paintings by L.A. original Cynthia Wick - opening reception at rumba Saturday, March 3rd
When Angeleno Cynthia Wick gave up her Hollywood career thirteen years ago, she returned to her
truest calling and once again began making art. After receiving her BFA from UCLA and studying at
the School of Visual Arts, Parsons School of Design, and the Art Students’ League in New York City,
Wick devoted two decades to the movie business as Executive Vice President of Marketing at 20th
Century Fox, followed by a partnership at Aspect Ratio, a movie marketing company.
Her recent move to the Berkshires in Western Massachusetts has greatly influenced her artwork, inspiring her to listen more closely to her own voice and take risks. Outside of the urban hustle, Wick is able to work more freely, echoing the expansive beauty in which she currently resides with her husband and two children. Her recent exploration of iPad painting, using the medium as an electronic sketchbook, has resulted in a gorgeous body of work, comprised of still lifes, landscapes, and portraits. These iPad creations allow Wick to create compelling imagery with the flick of a finger, images gleaned both from life and captured moments in photographic form, Wick filing in the unknown with her own memory and imagination.
We are quite thrilled to present iPad Paintings by Cynthia Wick, which celebrates its opening with Wick herself at rumba on Saturday, March 3rd, from 5-8 p.m. Please join us! To whet your artistic appetite, here are a few of our picks from the show of thirty vibrant, limited edition prints, each framed and measuring 33” x 26”; from left to right, “Stool”, “Orange Tree”, and “Yellow.”
