Research from Cyndy McKenzie

Departments: College of Art, Design and Architecture

Cyndy is a practicing textile artist who teaches textiles in the School of Design Fashion programmes. Within her practice, she has predominantly worked in the field of Fashion/Art Installation over the past ten years, and her work, exhibited both in New Zealand and Australia, situates her practice as a maker and a collector. Cyndy likes work that evolves from an immediate response to a material, a place, a space or a surface.
