Contemporary artist Dina González Mascaró has opened her latest exhibition of work, Ruminant, at Chernoff Fine Art.
Inspired by the remote “Womb Mountains” in Asia where pilgrims travel to experience transformation, Dina González Mascaró contemplates the death of her mother and father in Ruminant — an exhibition that also marks the Argentinean-Canadian artist’s return to drawing. The powerful works strike a precarious balance between light and dark, fragility and strength, structure and collapse, with myriad pieces intricately entangled, both defying and depending upon gravity to hold together. Ruminant reflects a year that González Mascaró spent “inside the mountain”, where she navigated her own darkness and tight passages, as well as light and calm, and emerged with some of her most breathtaking work to date.
Dina González Mascaró lives and works in Vancouver. Trained as a sculptor in Argentina, González Mascaró works in an – open space – overlap space – non place – between the art and design world. It is within that gap where González Mascaró displays her always three-dimensional view of things. González Mascaró’s body of work oscillates between scales and between disciplines – drawing, jewellery, sculpture, furniture and painting. For the past year DGM has been ruminating. Large Charcoal and graphite drawings are the result.
