Cynthia Gladis’ subjects are varied but have a common thread – an often humorous, sometimes ironic, view of her surroundings.
Her recent bodies of work include 720 South Carolina, a monochrome infrared study of South Carolina beach life; New (Jersey) Topographics, a quirky and ironic nod to the New Topographics photographers of 1975; and Sand Stories, abstract sand patterns from the shores of Hilton Head, South Carolina.
Cynthia Gladis was interviewed by FRAMES Magazine for a podcast and was the second FRAMES Artist in Residence. Her work is included in The Visual Conservancy’s Peer Zine 3 and the FRAMES Magazine website and featured in The Visual Conservancy, FRAMES Magazine, and The New Topographics Movement Instagram pages.
