Cynthia Ann Bickley Green, PhD

Cynthia Bickley-Green holds a Doctor of Philosophy in Art from the University of Georgia. Her dissertation entitled Afterimage in Painting explored the presence of afterimages in representational and abstract art. She has received grants from the Nation Endowment for the Humanities, The North Carolina Arts Council, Eisenhower program in mathematics and science, and the NC Space Consortium. Her paintings explore aftereffects in representational and abstract imagery. Kendall Hunt published her book Art Elements: Biological, Global, and Interdisciplinary Foundations in 2011. Her research and publications explore how visual media shape personal and social identities and world-views. The work demonstrates that the visual arts effectively transmit cultural understandings and interdisciplinary knowledge in classroom and other settings and have the potential to transform behavior. Her interdisciplinary visual art research explores entoptic imagery. She has published 44 scholarly articles and 121 art reviews, exhibited her artwork in more than 113 international, national, and regional shows. She has made 130 presentations about her research in cities across the United States and nine other countries. Currently, she is the Coordinator of Art Education at East Carolina University.
