Cynthia Horn

San Rafael, CA

As a painter, I am exploring concepts of memory, perception and the psychological space between them. Using the human figure my paintings investigate how memory and genetic trauma inform identity. My recent work emphasizes duality through mirroring, erasing and overlapping figures to create tension within a sense of calmness. My work has been shown in the Bay Area and throughout the United States, most recently with a solo show at Ridley Gallery at Sierra College.

Cynthia Horn is a San Francisco Bay Area fine artist and educator specializing in figurative painting and ceramics. She attended the University of California, Berkeley where she earned a BA in Art Practice followed by an MFA in Studio Art from University of California, Davis. She spent a year studying in Florence, Italy focusing on painting and art history. While in Umbria she apprenticed under the late, great watercolorist Betty Lynch and indulged in daily gelato sessions.

Cynthia currently teaches at University of California, Davis, and Chabot College.
