Plastic is the Alien Invasion We are Creating

Plastic is the Alien Invasion We are Creating

Anna Gustafson was conceived in
Guatemala to an Italian/Guatemalan
mother and Swedish father, and was born
in Sweden and raised in Vancouver,
Canada. Gustafson's long view has
benefited from being nurtured in a multicultural
family within an immigrant
perspective.
An important premise of her work is that
we best remember information and
event s through our senses and
associated emotions. As Anna’s practice
has a strong sensory component, her
work encourages each viewer to develop
their own emotional responses, and fully
absorb the information presented.
An honours graduate of Vancouver
School of Art - now Emily Carr - she has
shown in public galleries since 1974.
