Dara Humniski grew up in Edmonton, Alberta and completed Bachelor of Design in Industrial Design at the University of Alberta in 2004. MASS (2011) was her first major gallery installation, hand-painted on site in Manning Hall at the Art Gallery of Alberta. Her work is included in the City of Edmonton’s Public Art Collection and Canadian Centre for Austrian and European Studies at the University of Alberta. She has shown in both solo and group shows since 2005. Humniski is a multi-instrumentalist with a diverse background encompassing fine art, industrial design and carpentry. Using the natural world as a starting point, she experiments with scale and media to assemble fictional worlds with open-ended narratives that express things about the human condition. She is also a founding member of the Loyal Loot Collective.
