Faculty Profile: Sandy Lopez-Isnardi
Sands of Time
In the print “Sands of Time” dark shadows and textures come together with silver and grey tones to form an almost surreal beach setting. Sandy Lopez-Isnardi, associate professor of art and design, has been making traditional gelatin prints like this for over 20 years. Her work also includes non-silver and chromogenic prints and most recently has focused on the Midwestern landscape in photography. Her digital work is experimental, including two-dimensional and installation works.
Lopez-Isnardi has a wide background of professional and educational experience. Throughout her career she has been involved in commercial and fine art photography. Professionally, she has worked as a graphic designer and photographer for various corporations and small businesses in New York and Cincinnati. She has studied in an overseas program at Universidad de Sevilla and taught for a year at University of Sacred Heart in Puerto Rico.
Lopez-Isnardi has been involved as an advisor for the Pine River Anthology. The anthology is a student-produced literary and arts magazine that exemplifies the creativity, talent and hard work of many Alma College students. She received a Bachelor of Science degree from the State University of New York at New Paltz and a Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Cincinnati.
