Cydnei Mallory is an interdisciplinary artist currently based in Phoenix Arizona. She received her MFA from Arizona State University and her BFA from The Pennsylvania State University. Interested in materiality, Mallory uses everything from cast metals, rope, and basic fabrics, to hairnets, silicone, and hair. Combining traditional and non-traditional practices in her work, Mallory uses the body as a reference to explore issues surrounding stereotyped ideas of gender, sexuality, and class. The sculptures, made of found and mass-produced objects, explore literal actions with literal materials.
