Sara Cwynar’s composite photographs of found objects and images court feelings of time passing. Using studio sets, collage, and re-photography, she produces intricate tableaux that draw from magazine advertisements, postcards, or catalogs. Cwynar is interested in how design and popular images work on our psyches, in how their visual strategies infiltrate our consciousness. Recent exhibitions include: L’Image Volée, Fondazione Prada, Milan, (2016); Greater New York, MoMA PS1, New York (2015-2016); and Under Construction—New Positions in American Photography, Pioneer Works, New York (2015).
