Cynthia Mailman (born 1942 in the Bronx, New York) is an American painter and educator. She is known for figurative and landscape works done in a "cool, pared-down" style. Her further on paintings were presented from a turn inside the artist's VW van, looking outward, and enhance mirrors, wipers or further interior elements next to the exterior landscape. By undertaking this, Mailman put the observer in the driver's seat, which is after that the artist's lessening of view. According to Lawrence Alloway, "The interplay of directional motion and expanding space is a convincing forward movement of the melody of landscape painting".
