Sydney “Sage” Cain (she/them), is a visual artist born and raised in San Francisco, CA. Their work reflects encounters with unseen realities.

Current works with printmaking, powdered metals and sculpture mine personal archives, their family’s genealogy, and the intersections of urban renewal and displacement on the psychic, spiritual, emotional and physical wellbeing of marginalized communities.
