Cynthia Minet

Cynthia Minet’s sculptures, drawings and installations stem from her interests in scientific and ecological issues. Made from translucent post-consumer plastics and LEDS, her work often prompts viewers to ponder the complicated roles that plastics, consumer culture, and electricity play in our lives. She constructs anatomically accurate life-scale domesticated animals, and intends them as surrogates for human experience, presenting human nature via the animal.

Minet has shown her sculptural installations in museums and galleries in the USA and internationally. Her next major project is a commissioned solo installation (Migrations), for the International Museum of Art and Science in McAllen, TX, forthcoming in April 2018. Her next solo museum show in Los Angeles is scheduled for September, 2019 at the Craft and Folk Art Museum.
