Cynthia O’Neill (1990) is a Baltimore based interdisciplinary artist who uses art as a method of healing, communicating and narrating personal journey. Illness and art have been constants in her life; survival and medical conditions often force her to consider anatomy when investigating how humans exist within the world. Through sculptures, body adornments, and installations her work explores consciousness, perception and the biology of the human condition with a variety of technology, biofeedback, human-made and naturally occurring materials. O’Neill scales her work to a relationship with the physical anatomical form. Themes of meditation, medicine, anatomy, conflict, and sexuality in relationship to the body are recurrent throughout her practice. O’Neill is a second year graduate student at the Rinehart School of Sculpture.
