Bio

Cindi earned degrees from Lesley University College of Art and Design (formerly AIB of Lesley University) in Boston, MA and The Corcoran College of Art+Design in Washington, DC.

She currently resides in Albuquerque, New Mexico where she has been influenced by the palette of the landscape and vast open spaces.

Cindi has had exhibitions in California, Massachusetts, New Mexico, Washington, DC, and Italy.

Most recently, she traveled to Ireland to enjoy a month long residency in the Burren where she found inspiration from delving into the concept of identity through place.

Artist's Statement

My work reveals a confluence of emotions surrounding loss, memory, and identity. I expose painful memories, while at the same time attempt to hide human vulnerabilities. I follow my need to engage in repetitive gestures the intention of suppressing unprocessed loss.

This artistic endeavor is a means to connect the present with the longing of an unknown history, to reveal a lost identity. The physical act of making objects unearths intuitive connections that transform a deeply submerged sensation of someone or something gone missing.

My process manifests as the accumulation of symbolic objects and scraps of memory as I wrestle with my own anxiety, perceptions, and experiences, which reflect an intense need to connect the missing gaps that occurred through the secrecy of adoption.
