Cynthia Constentino

 I really love the gesture in Constentino's sculptures. The artist's exploration of girlhood and humanness is quirky and a little disarming. It's really hard to create art around the concept of childhood (especially girlhood) without being tossed off as saccharin or flimsy or shallow, for the simple fact that our culture views anything feminine in those terms. The portrait of the artist shows her working on some tiles for an installation she designed at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center. Its a girls' bathroom and pretty amazing. Take a peak at it on her website. Her cast iron sculptures are also amazing.
