Cat Pino

  • Mixed Media

Cat was born in Calama, a city in the Atacama Desert in north of Chile. At 8 years old, she immigrated with her family to Saskatchewan to escape the Pinochet regime. She completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts at University of Saskatchewan. Her experience growing up in an isolated Saskatchewan town manifested a severe eating disorder. Her amplified feelings of guilt, isolation and loneliness, provided the initial conduit for her creative expression. Her road to recovery inspires her current work with concepts of rebirth, resurrection and transformation. It’s important for Cat to feel the movement of her body while in a creative space. She works on the floor rather than using an easel.  In her own words “I observe each mark, colour and texture in search for a pattern. If I don’t see a pattern I keep moving… [this]… allows me to surrender to the act itself similar to what a dancer feels when they connect to a song. It’s the movement that is now the conduit to the creative process.
