Cynthia Back

Cynthia Back (Philadelphia, PA) makes work that explores a wide variety of intaglio techniques with color playing a predominant role in the final image. Using viscosity printing and multiple plates to produce areas of overlapping color her imagery suggests natural forms and suburban landscapes. Her use of repetitive motifs stresses fragmentation and leads to a deeper exploration of her underlying compositions. The work explores issues of suburban sprawl, the subsequent destruction of habitats, farms and forests and the homogenization of suburban environments.

Back has studied at both St. Martin's School of Art and Wimbledon School of Art, both in London, and received her BFA from Minneapolis College of Art and Design.  She has had numerous shows throughout Pennsylvania and New York including a solo show at Villanova University Art Gallery and inclusion in the North American Print Biennial, Boston, MA. Her work is in numerous public collections including The Free Library of Philadelphia, Philadelphia, PA; The Library of Congress, Washington, DC; Museum of Modern Art/Franklin Furnace Artist Book Collection, New York, NY; The New York Historical Society and The New York Public Library, New York, NY.
