Gina Pasaran is an emerging visual artist in Treaty 6 Territory, so-called ‘Edmonton’. She was born in Mexico and immigrated to Canada from a young age. As an artist, Gina explores facets of personal identity, mental and physical wellness, and navigating close relationships throughout her art practice. She is interested in aspects of care and connection. She merges her art practice with a printmaking aspect, interchanging the dialogues between the digital world and the analog. Gina is interested in the objects that surround oneself, as well as places and geographies, that can become a part of one’s identity. She has completed a Fine Art Diploma from MacEwan University and is graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Art and Design from the University of Alberta. Gina has volunteered in local galleries such as the Mitchell Art Gallery and artist run centre Latitude 53 plus exhibited in group shows in independent spaces like Parallel Space in Edmonton. Currently, Gina is involved with artists Hannah Jickling and Helen Reed in their Edmonton/Treaty 6 project with the Mitchell Art Gallery and John A McDougall Elementary School.
