About Cynthia Brody
Cynthia Brody has been an exhibiting artist for over 40 years. She studied painting at Parsons School of Design and The New School in New York. Ms. Brody developed a self-taught style of mixed media painting that she has expanded upon throughout the years. The bulk of her work incorporates the combination of photo images with acrylic paints and found materials to create a surreal impression. The photos are often used out of context for their visual texture, and it is only upon closer inspection that the viewer begins to discover that what appears to be recognizable is actually something else entirely. Her works incorporate elements of beauty, such as metallic paints and gold leaf, which parallel the adornment of the subjects in some of the cross-cultural pieces. This is contrasted with the strong statements and pensive attitudes of the women depicted. Several of the pieces resemble icons honoring the complexity, angst and beauty of the female experience. 

Ms. Brody is also a psychotherapist practicing in Lexington, Massachusetts. Her interest in the psyche is reflected in her artwork. She is the contributing editor of Bittersweet Legacy - Creative Responses to the Holocaust, a collection of art and poetry published by University Press of America. In her work as artist, editor and therapist, Ms Brody strives to raise the awareness and sensitivity of others regarding the human experience and the struggles and beauty, which are an integral part of life.
