"The first time I showed Cynthia Lund Torroll's pencil drawings at The Outsider Fair in New York City there was an immediate, positive, visceral response from the viewers, almost like an imagined dialogue with the images.
From the most sophisticated collector to first time buyers,
all found the imagined narrative that her work suggests engaging and intriguing,
and not surprisingly, her work sold out on opening night."
"Cynthia’s drawings are haunting, enigmatic statements about the human condition -
but they are celebratory too.
I salute her.
She is a true visionary."
"It's magnificently done.
Honest and compassionate yet eerie and ominous."
"A rising star could be spotted at the booth of Marion Harris, New York City. Five large graphite drawings were hung moments before the doors opened for Thursday evening’s preview.
The exquisite drawings were the work of self-taught Wisconsin artist Cynthia Lund Torroll who juxtaposed children’s faces with wild elements of wilderness, sharply textured tree bark and leaves.
Her surreal imagery was drawn with uncanny talent, perfectly capturing the smooth radiance of the children’s skin.
Not surprisingly four of the five pieces sold on opening night."
"There is a spiritual intensity, a calling from beyond in the work of Cynthia Lund Torroll that draws me in time and time again.
If the eyes are windows to the soul, I have found that place of deeper meaning through the highly detailed world that these archetypes exist in. They yearn for that mutual connection with the viewer and succeed brilliantly every time."
