Informed by the patterns and cycles of nature, Marina Dempster’s craft is a transmutation of materials, thoughts and emotions. Loop by loop, bead by bead, she explores human paradoxes: comfort and discomfort, stillness and action, acceptance and change.
Marina Dempster is a sculptural fibre artist who makes contemporary objects employing traditional craft techniques. Her playful and vibrant installations are a celebration of the human imagination, showing that renewal and growth are encouraged when a personal practice is conducted in a communal context.
Exhibited internationally in more than a dozen art museums, Dempster was among the artists chosen to represent the ‘Unity & Diversity’ of contemporary Canadian craft at The Cheoungju International Biennale.
