Painter and sculptor Cynthia Ona Innis’s work evokes the fluid transformations that occur in nature. She challenges the notion of eternal landscapes, creating multimedia works that highlight environmental transitions and shifting terrains. Innis combines multiple viewpoints and scales, dissecting and interweaving distinct areas of sky, sand, and dirt. She paints, dyes, and bleaches various fabrics and textiles, crafting evocative tapestries that blur the boundaries of abstraction and realism.
Innis received her Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of California at Berkeley and a Master of Fine Arts degree from Rutgers University, New Jersey. Her works are included in the permanent collections of the San Jose Museum of Art, the Berkeley Art Museum, and the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, all in California.
