Animal Spirits

“ANIMAL SPIRITS”, a series of paintings originally conceived in 2008, during a residency in China and continuing into the present.

Peggy Cyphers’ painted characters and landscapes vibrate in dialogues of rhythm and repetition that influence sensory perception. Numerous co-mingling voices of species play in these dialogues.  Her surfaces recall color field, where abstract forms operate in a psychological dialogue of association. – congestion and vast span, hyper-speed and recognizable icon.  Cyphers’ painting is automatic writing – a stream of consciousness in unison with the animal kingdom, between geological, primordial and cultural time.  Brush marks dominate her work, with homage to American Abstraction, and Chinese, Zen and  Navaho sand painting.
