Cynthia Scott Cynthia Scott, a transplant New Orleanian sculptor, earned an MFA from Tulane University and stuck around to continue her journey into three-dimensions. Scott’s recent work includes whimsical plastic chandeliers (or as she titles them, “Chandeleurs”). Her current assemblage of bright plastic containers and linear metal objects emphasize her artistic play with salvaged and recycled materials. Re-contextualizing the easily obtainable object empower Scott and the viewer to regain a child-like eye toward the everyday world. Don't mistake the playful nature of the pieces for a lack of conceptual depth; the materials actually hint at her deeper intentions and exploration of sociopolitical issues.
