Sara Cwynar (b. 1985, Vancouver) is a New York based artist working in photography, installation and book-making. Her work involves a constant archiving and re-presentation of collected visual materials. She is interested in the way that images morph, accumulate, endure and change in meaning and value over time, and the effect this has on a collective worldview. The publication of her second book, Kitsch Encyclopedia is scheduled for winter 2014 with Blonde Art Books and she was recently awarded Printed Matter’s Emerging Artists Publication Series Grant for her forthcoming book Pictures of Pictures. She will have solo exhibitions at the Rosenwald-Wolf Gallery in Philadelphia and Foxy Production in New York in spring 2014.
