Cindy Wagner describes herself as a "visual narrator," telling stories through a variety of media including photography, digital image making, mixed media, and painting. Her WMA exhibition, "Guest Room in the Unconscious Mind," draws on her mother's interest to chronicle family history and collect photographs of ancestors, but she uses her own form of digital collage to reinterpret these documents of past lives. Wagner breathes new life into the old photographs by mixing images of people lost to history with new material and digital distortion, inviting the viewer to reconsider the lives and likenesses of people who were once only memories. Her work is haunting and calls into question our own mortality and desire to be remembered.
