Tamara Rusnak is a Saskatchewan artist who works frequently in sculpture and installation, using a range of materials and processes to build objects that reference and emulate natural forms.

In our previous feature, we looked at Tamara’s knack for ecological installations, and building sculptures that reference and explore the unique aesthetics of nature. Unlike artists such as Troy Nickle, Tamara doesn’t solely use materials found directly in nature -- Tamara’s works often incorporate elements like paper maché and even disposable items like paper cups and boxes.

In one recent project, Tamara collaborated with students from Aden Bowman Collegiate to create an outdoor installation out of discarded food packaging. The installation, shown at night, is lit up and beautiful in a way that belies its nature as a showcase of waste.
