Cindy Konits’ work explores complexities of family history and memory in the face of evolving technologies. The media employed are primarily electronic, both analog and digital. Cindy is an endlessly curious observer of people. The purposes of self-reflection and cultivated empathy fuel her creative process. She hopes to evoke the same on the part of the viewer.
With a BA in Psychology and Education and an Urban Planning masters degree, her first experiments with photography generated solo shows with NEA and NEH exhibition grants. She was awarded a full merit scholarship to the Maryland Institute College of Art MFA program, after which she became an adjunct Associate Professor at Stevenson University teaching Photography and Video Art. In 2020 she was winner in the Fine Art and Portrait Julia Cameron Award categories, a Pollux Award winner in the Fine Art category, and she was in Creative Quarterly Art & Design Journal 100 Best in 2019 and 2020. Cindy lives and works in Baltimore, Maryland and New York City. She is represented by The Commotion Virtual Salon, Vancouver BC.
