Cinzia (Syndy) Esteves, is an emerging visual artist, a graduate of UNSW with a Bachelor of fine arts (Honours).
Syndy’s artwork is aspired by experiences attached to ethereal feelings and societal conditions. They investigate ideologies of our everyday social conditions and environments and the muse is via the ‘childhood’ stage that conditions our identities, reflected through mnemonic visuals and dreams. Using memory via the childhood and adolescent stage she creates paintings or drawings using the images that are played in her memory by visions, objects, people, and dreams. Syndy uses photographs and at times models to pose. Mnemonic objects are also used to create such storyboards and her paintings generally evolve through experimental and restricted colour palettes.
The solo exhibition ‘MNEMONIC CHRONICLES’ investigates memory and how memory works through mnemonic objects. This exhibition comprises of several body of works.
One body of work ‘The Teddy Chronicles’ is a series of storyboard paintings that uses her alter ego, a teddy to recreate images of childhood experiences with other mnemonic object taking persona. The palette colours reflect her favourite childhood colours and palette investigations. These works are accompanied by a sketch bookn of the chronicles and mnemonic poems. Other body of works reflect realism or impressionist styles conditioned by the mnemonic and investigated via family ideologies photographs and film, regarding family paintings and portraiture.
