Cynthia Innis’ mixed media paintings investigate forms under transformation. Time and movement are explored through a narrative created with drawing, paint and collage. Her work is included in the permanent collections of the San Jose Museum of Art, the collection of the US State Department Art in Embassies, the Berkeley Art Museum and the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. Among awards she has received are two James D. Phelan Awards, one for printmaking and another for painting, a MacDowell Colony Fellowship and a Kala Fellowship. With representation in Los Angeles at the Walter Maciel Gallery, Innis exhibits throughout the United States, including a show at Headlands, as well as internationally. Innis received a BA from the University of California at Berkeley and a MFA from Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University. She lives and works in Oakland.
