Cindy Wiseman is a painter, art educator and historian who has taught in the Department of Art since 2009. She is passionate about teaching—about utilizing art as a lens to view society and oneself in a contemplative manner. This creative pedagogical endeavor is evident in her vibrant teaching style juxtaposed with an introspective studio practice.
Exhibiting nationally with numerous solo and group exhibitions, Wiseman works in series of mixed media abstract paintings exploring meditative reflections on the environment. Her recent body of work titled, “Through Eyes of Contemplation” features paintings centered on an ethereal landscapes. In the series, she combines the mediums oil paint with embossed metal, psychologically intertwining representations of abstracted landscapes. (Research supported through a UA Art Dept. Faculty Research grant in 2016.)
In 2015-16 Wiseman participated in national collaborative creative and philanthropic project “The Patra Passage” exhibited at the Museum of Glass in Tacoma, Washington, as well as being a participant in the documentary film on the project (2016).
