Cindy L. Lys is a Haitian-American visual artist and a clinical social worker on the south side of Chicago. Cindy’s work explores textile designs, indigo vat dyeing and Japanese Shibori techniques inspired by Haitian sacred art, African and Afro-Caribbean spirituality. She explores the symbolism of black spirituality; the mythology of a people as moral and spiritual foundation of self-knowledge, self-empowerment and ethical life. Delving into the complementarity of Haitian religiosity through its syncretism with Roman Catholicism, Cindy destabilizes the stigma commonly attached to Haitian Vodou and the black sacred cosmos.
