You don’t get rid of pain; you make room for it.
Cindy Lemmon is an artist who is deeply in touch with her emotions. Her art is heavily influenced by loss, love, shame, vulnerability, and empathy. Through her work, she can effectively communicate the narratives behind her pieces, giving viewers a glimpse into her unique perspective on identity suppression, religious misgivings, racial oppression, and ecological and social issues. Lemmon prefers painting on large-scale canvas or paper surfaces. The scale of Lemmon's work allows her to be fully involved in the piece's energy. Lemmon's materials consist of watercolor, ink, pigment, and acrylic. Lemmon also has begun to digitally manipulate photos of her existing or in-progress work to create entirely new pieces that maintain her style.
