Cid Bolduc



    Cid Bolduc was born and raised in Maine. She attended Boston University, The Art Institute of Boston and The Museum School of The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. In the early 1980′s, Bolduc was accepted into a summer painting program at the Provincetown Art Association and Museum. At the summers end, she became a year-round resident.


    Over the last 25 years, as an active member of the Provincetown art community, Bolduc has had the opportunity to work, study and play with many talented acclaimed artists. Professionally, Cid has worked at the Provincetown Art Association and Museum, Castle Hill School for the Arts in Truro, The Fine Arts Work Center and has been director of several local galleries. In her career Cid has volunteered many hours teaching working workshops for non-profit organizations and for the public schools on the outer cape. Currently, in addition to her studio practice and exhibiting, Cid teaches a variety of workshops for all ages and levels.


    While acclaimed for her award-winning encaustic works, Cid also works in egg tempera and recently has returned to Photography. As always, her vibrant, modern abstract paintings evidence the influences of Hans Hofmann and Lillian Orlowsky. Cid Bolduc’s art can be found in permanent collections, including the Provincetown Art Association and Museum. These days, Cid divides her time between Cape Cod and Gulfport, Florida along with Francesca and 3 Jacks.

Artist Statement
My art deals primarily with abstract interpretations of nature. Currently, I am working mostly in encaustic. This hot wax and oil method of painting affords a unique experience of both texture and color. The multiple depths achieved by building up and subtracting layers from the surface results in a visually tactile image which exemplifies the “push pull” use of pictorial space.
