PUZZLE ART by Faith Cuda
During the month of September, Art Central Gallery presents a solo
exhibit, “Puzzle Art,” by Faith Cuda. This captivating body of work
is on view during regular business hours, Monday-Saturday 10 am-5 pm, at the
gallery at 130 Central Avenue, Summerville, South Carolina.
Speaking of her newest paintings, Faith says, “Creating art can be
both fascinating and challenging at the same time. With these
paintings, I held the image in my mind and heart along with the medium (oil or
acrylic paint) and my unique style of applying the paint. All of it
came together to bring the images to life. The size of a piece of
art, whether large or miniature, is also part of the equation. The
work can be a single canvas or a number of pieces put together like a puzzle to
create the final image.”
In “Puzzle Art,” Faith uses the time-honored method of continuing
the image across two or more canvases. A diptych, such as
“Sunburst,” is a two-paneled piece joined into one painting, with or without a
hinge. The showcase piece of this exhibit, “Prismatic Puzzle,” is a
triptych, meaning the painting consists of three panels. The panels
do not have to be the same size. One panel can be larger and the
other two smaller or any creative combination the artist wishes to arrange the
“Poppies Galore” is a polyptych, or a piece of art having more
than three panels. Faith explains, “A polyptych can include many
panels depending on the size and structure of the total image being
painted. In this case I painted four canvases that were the same
size. The resulting work is unusually large and hopefully powerful.”
Faith Cuda will be honored at a reception on Third Thursday,
September 20, 2018 5 pm-8 pm. Her exhibit, “Puzzle Art,” will be
presented until the end of the month. For more information visit www.artcgalleryltd.com.
