Sydney Cain

Sydney Cain, aka sage stargate, was born and raised in San Francisco. Their multimedia work is largely on paper using dye, graphite, powdered metals, and chalk as emblems of impermanence and transformation. They investigate remembrance, evolution and spirituality from their perspective as a queer Black woman. Their current work is founded on genealogy research alongside the effects of urban renewal/colonialism and threats against Black afterlives.
