Cynthia lives on the coast of Maine where she works in a wide range of media; in bronze, stone, wood and clay, also in oil, pastel, watercolor, photography, and collage. Trained as a classical sculptor, her work explores a three-dimensional world of opposing forces – motion and stillness, light and darkness – that she calls the “choreography of life”.
Her sculptures capture the energy of wild animals and flying figures in action and at rest – from the leap and flex of a dolphin in midair and the tumble of bear cubs at play to the lazy poise of a sleeping bobcat. Through accuracy of gesture and form, Stroud achieves an elegant lyricism that moves us out of realism into the dynamic tension of her subjects that reverberates through all of her work.
