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. Self-reflection and empathy fuel her creative process and her intention is 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. Born in Central New Jersey in 1954, Cindy now lives and works in Baltimore, Maryland and New York City. She is represented by The Commotion Virtual Salon, Vancouver BC.
