Enzina Marrari is a visual and performance artist living and working in Anchorage, Alaska.

Artist Statement:
Enzina Marrari is a visual and performance artist whose work addresses themes of the social, personal and political elements of the human experience. Through her performance pieces and mixed media works, she pushes the boundaries of personal vs. social space, norms and behaviors. This results in a sense of exposure, vulnerability and investigation that is consistent throughout her work.

Marrari consistently works in the areas of sculpture, mixed media, drawing and works on paper and performance.

Marrari is also interested in merging fashion design and sculpture to create wearable art pieces. She incorporates painting, drawing, craft, fiber arts and sculpture into two and three dimensional forms. This provides a different avenue for Marrari to investigate the connections between process and outcome, person and object.
