Rina Pita is a mixed media artist and printmaker, based in Vancouver, British Columbia. She has a background in industrial design and landscape architecture, with a degree from the University of Chile and certification by the British Columbia Society of Landscape Architects. She also obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts with honours in painting from the University of Victoria, and upon graduation, she enrolled at the School of Visual Arts, in New York, for further studies in painting. She has exhibited her works both nationally and internationally.
Her work addresses time and space in terms of light and sequential movement and explores how these elements play against each other and are imprinted through photography. In her narrative mixed media works, the figure becomes an integral part of psychological realms, exploring the nature of memories as they relate to the social and cultural rituals of her personal environment and the ambiguous boundary between real, perceived and borrowed memories.
