Suzanne Northcott, Sudoku’s Dream

Suzanne Northcott, Sudoku’s Dream, acrylic, graphite, charcoal on cradled panel [Linda Lando Gallery, Vancouver BC, Nov 1-10]

Suzanne Northcott and Rishma Dunlop

Linda Lando Gallery
Vancouver BC – Nov 1–10, 2007

Esperanza is a collaborative exhibition of paintings by Suzanne Northcott and poetry by Rishma Dunlop. Northcott and Dunlop have worked together on exhibitions and publications since their first show, The Body of My Garden (2002), at Linda Lando.

Esperanza, or “hope,” explores themes of individual and collective memory, hope, childhood, erotic love, the natural world, and the endurance of the human spirit. This unique collaboration between women artists includes multimedia art and textual works, as well as the performance of poetry. The gentle paintings feature sand, shells, “molting” petals, butterflies, female figures, roses and ruins painted in a romantic, semi-abstract style. Dunlop will be doing several poetry readings during the opening on Thursday, November 1.

Suzanne Northcott is a mainly self-taught interdisciplinary artist living in Fort Langley, B.C. and working with installation, video, painting and drawing. She is a senior member of the Federation of Canadian Artists and a popular teacher. Rishma Dunlop is a professor of Literary Studies in the Faculty of Education at York University, Toronto. She is the founder of a research collective of women artists/researchers called The Red Shoes Collective, and her ongoing collaborations with visual artists include exhibitions of literary texts and art, collaborative publications and performances.
