Dina González Mascaró lives and works in Vancouver. Trained as a sculptor in her native Argentina, González Mascaró's practice is multipidisciplinary. Dina was trained in Argentina at the Universidad Nacional de La Plata where she received her MFA and later became a teacher at the school. In 2000, she won Argentina’s National Art Prize, the Premio Antorchas and was awarded a residency at the Banff Centre for the Fine Arts. In 2002 she completed a year-long residency at the Western Front, and since that time her art practice has been based in Vancouver.
As a sculptor, Dina’s work is always an exploration of volume, regardless of the medium or subject matter. Volume is worked via themes of structure, architecture, construction, demolition, nature, decay, memory, and loss. Her search is a relentless expression of ideas in different mediums: drawing, painting, ceramics, sculpture, installation, and objects, including sculpture as fine craft (jewellery).
