About Cindy Kane's most recent show, "Wing to Wing," The Washington Post had this to say:
"Whether perched in rows or speeding outward from the center of the composition, birds teem in Cindy Kane’s paintings. Yet the message of the Massachusetts artist’s show at Cross MacKenzie Gallery, “Wing to Wing,” is not the 19th-century notion of nature’s boundless profusion. The selection includes a photo of Kane’s “Empty Skies Project,” an installation of death beds for avian extinctions. Each includes a pillow on which Kane has painted an example of the lost species.
The pictures in this selection, although rendered just as exquisitely, have a more whimsical tone. The title piece, the only one to feature butterflies, catalogues 144 different wings like treasures from an organic jewel box. The birds of “Neighborhood” are painted on pages of a 1970s directory from the Fairfax County development where both Kane and gallery proprietor Rebecca Cross grew up. Also included are nearly two dozen hand-painted magazine covers, which imagine birds instead of humans as the latest news. Perhaps that will actually happen before the skies empty."
