Cindy Dominguez is photographer, visual artist, and arts teacher working from her home in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
She studied art history and painting at Westminster College in Salt Lake City, Utah before returning to her native home, New Mexico, in 1984 to study photography. While finishing degrees from the University of New Mexico and College of Santa Fe in Fine Art and Education respectively, Ms. Dominguez traveled with purpose. A continuing influence in her art work, living and studying in places such as St. Louis, New York, San Francisco, and treks through Mexico and South America fine-tuned her aesthetic; her study in Italy and Croatia strongly influences recent work.
Ms. Dominguez marries traditional photographic techniques with contemporary digital procedures to create clean, careful constructs. Placed in geometric environments, she examines the relationships between space and time. Her images are, at once, humorous, claustrophobic, and soulful pieces which yield elements of ceaseless intrigue.
She has worked with a variety of black and white darkroom processes, color darkroom processes, Polaroid film, large format, and digital imaging. Since 1985 Ms. Dominguez has created commissioned photographic works for Austin Chronicle, Santa Fe Magazine, and promo CD covers for various musicians. She has placed work in numerous group and solo shows in TX, NYC, and NM. She currently teaches Art at Menaul School, an independent boarding and day school in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
