Zana Wensel

Artist member since 2019
Edmonton, Alberta

Zana Wensel is a multidisciplinary artist and recent graduate of OCAD University (2019), currently residing in her home-place of Edmonton. Throughout her work, Zana instills deeper meaning within the materials and methods she employs while infusing each process with introspection and self-analysis. In doing so, she seeks out various forms of catharsis, and offers her works as reflections on the fabric of our human existence. In her current 'Knotty Enigma' series, Zana draws from her own experiences with cell memory, and aims to articulate the somatic weight through these 'memory-knot' forms—dark, colossal, and cumulative. Through their ambiguity, these enigmas challenge both the artist and viewer to find their way through these knots, and to reflect upon whatever may arise in the process.
