Artist Statement-Cendriah Maloney
As I travel and observe interior spaces, I learn so much about what people treasure, what they enjoy, and how they work. Intimate details of day-to-day life come to light, without a single word being spoken.
I use photographs from my travels as inspiration for my paintings. I not only want those viewing my paintings to observe how others experience life, but I want them to bring their own experiences into the story of the scene.
As the granddaughter of an Austrian immigrant sculptor, I was, and continue to be, encouraged by my family to pursue my passion for art. I received a traditional Fine Arts education at university where art history introduced me to many artists and styles--my favorite of which is John Singer Sargent. Johannes Vermeer and his domestic scenes have special meaning to me as I focus on interiors revealing daily life. Our communities are an important part of how we experience life, and I have found that donating my skills by creating mural-sized illustrations for church sermons and donating paintings to local non-profits are ways I am able to contribute to my community.
