Cindy Wynn, American, 1964
Using age old techniques of welding, torch cutting and grinding, Wynn turns industry castoffs into avant garde functional, fine art furniture. Her focus is the interaction of people with their most basic creature comforts; chairs & tables.
Wynn's approach is to make people’s contact with her work a surreal, royal experience by ergonomically fitting the human form to the work of art. The first chairs were thrones, every civilization since then has produced prized examples like Wynn’s.
Classically trained, many influences: Bosch, 18th century furniture, science fiction, junkyards and Japanese anime, shape her art. It evokes a sense of comfort and ceremonial fun with a fascinating mixture of heavy metal and whimsical creative detail.
