Artist Statement

Dina Bursztyn makes sculptures, public art, artist's books and prints. She has been awarded public art commissions by the NYC MTA Arts for Transit, NYC Percent for Arts Program and the Public Art Fund, among others. She has an extensive show record that includes the Chappaqua Library Gallery, Neuberger Museum, The Arts Exchange, the Bronx Museum, Artists Space, Center for Book Arts, Art in General (NYC), Ex Gallery (Tokyo, Japan), and  Central Library of Mexico. She conceives most of her pieces as contemporary artifacts for a democratic mythology; she is interested in breaking categories and linear hierarchical systems, in marrying cultures, times, and ways of thinking. Originally from Mendoza, Argentina, her initial inspiration was pre-Columbian art and the magic realism of Latin-American literature. She also derives inspiration from tribal and ancient cultures from different parts of the world as well as from nature and the cityscape.
