My works on paper begin at the printing press, with multiple runs or plates, and often take final form as collages. The imagery emerges in squishes, overlapping colors, intersecting linework, and the perfect paper scrap. Shapes, lines, and colors conspire in ever shifting ways, each interaction bringing surprise, delight, and possibility. Pure play, each turn of the press wheel offers up opportunities to inhabit a new space—to breathe in orange, green and red, to go like this.
I'm also an experience designer at UCSF. A selection of recent projects can be found at cynthiamilionis.com.
