Sara Cwynar Bio
About The Artist
Sara Cwynar is a New York based artist working in photography, installation and book-making. Her work involves a constant archiving and re-presentation of collected visual materials. She is interested in the way that images morph, accumulate, endure and change in meaning and value over time, and the effect this has on a collective worldview. She is a former staff graphic designer at the New York Times Magazine.
Recent exhibitions include solo presentations at Cooper Cole Gallery, Toronto, Retrospective Gallery, Hudson, and Foxy Production, New York and group exhibitions at Higher Pictures, New York, and the Dallas Art Museum, Dallas, Texas. Her second artists book, Kitsch Encyclopedia was published in winter 2014 and her third book, Pictures of Pictures was published by Printed Matter in fall 2014.
