About Cynthia Minet

image12

Cynthia Minet works with recycled plastics and light to address environmental issues in illuminated, site-responsive sculptures and installations, often paired with preparatory drawings on paper. Her process involves extensive research into animal gesture and anatomy, place and history, and developments in science and technology. Using mostly translucent recycled plastics, her artwork combines well-crafted anatomical accuracy with a hand-built aesthetic. Wires connecting the LEDS are visible on the works, adding an element of contour line that is repeated in the drawings that often accompany her installations. She sees the animals she portrays as surrogates for human experience, and the plastic materials they are made from draw attention to the petrochemicals that contribute to climate change, species extinction, and ecological devastation. Her goal is to both seduce and unsettle the viewer, prompting consideration of our shared responsibility for the natural world.
