Cyndy Barbone is an artist based in Greenwich, New York, where she lives and maintains a studio. Working primarily on the handloom, she creates figurative work, inscribing her woven textiles with images that are personal yet have cultural or political references. For her, weaving has been a metaphor for the creation of something other than just cloth, whether a moment or a narrative.
Her work was recently featured in the VIII International Biennial of Contemporary Textile Art WTA in Madrid in 2019. Awards include the New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship in Crafts, which she received twice. Cyndy has an MFA from California College of the Arts. She was a guest instructor at Penland School of Craft in October 2019.
