Cinda Manins

Ceramic Studio

The daughter of a leading CSIRO climate scientist, Cinda feels deeply about the climate crisis and is committed to communicating her position through her creative medium, as guided by her Humanist and Wabi-Sabi philosophies. She studied Ceramics at Ballarat Uni (2012) with lecturer, Pete Pilven, has a B.A. Anthropology & Media, and a Graduate Diploma in Museum Studies.

She has worked in various Arts administration roles in Galleries and NFPs. She enjoys using her initiative, and has been involved in founding a couple of ARI Galleries and sitting on committees.
She has been a resident artist at Gasworks Arts Park in Albert Park since 2019.

Cinda's artist narrative explores the relationship of humanity to the environment and raises questions about our exploitation of the earth's resources by envisaging a post human future - After the Anthropocene. She is also interested in representations of the concept of time, contrasting biological and geological time. Her work is held in private and State collections.
