Cindy Dominguez is a photographer, visual artist, and arts teacher in Albuquerque, New Mexico. She studied and completed degrees in Art History and Painting at Westminster College, Photography at the University of New Mexico, and Education at The College of Santa Fe. Her work appears regularly in both group and solo shows in New Mexico and beyond.
Dominguez marries traditional photographic techniques with contemporary digital procedures, printmaking, and sewing to create clean, careful constructs that emphasize clean design over story-telling. She employs simplicity and exactness in her compositions while adding enough elements of familiarity to create strain in understanding. If meaning is derived from our preconceived opinions and experiences, then she hopes her work surprises and confuses – like looking in a mirror and not seeing what you expect to see.
