Natasha Mazurka’s art practice addresses the communicative potential of pattern, the role of pattern systems in ordering experience, and the cross-cultural and trans-disciplinary morphology of these systems. Her work engages vocabularies of graphic syntax from assorted disciplines and eras, recombining approaches that visualize natural and technological phenomena.

Recent exhibitions include Recombinant, Prince Takamado Gallery, Japan (2014); Papier Contemporary Art Fair, Montreal (2014); Primer, Patrick Mikhail Gallery, Ottawa (2014); and Natural Motif, Ottawa Art Gallery, Ottawa (2013).
