Biography

Suzanne Northcott is an interdisciplinary artist working with installation, video, painting and drawing.  She is interested in the shifting place where one thing becomes another, studying dreams and meditation and themes of transformation, decay, metamorphosis and migration.  This interest in the space between also manifests in her continuing history of collaborative work with poets, scientists and artists in other genres.

Northcott’s work is held in numerous collections including the Surrey Art Gallery’s public collection.  She is a sought-after lecturer and instructor; as workshop leader Suzanne often combines international cultural excursions with painting and yoga instruction.  She has been guest instructor at UBC, Capilano University, York University, Trinity Western University and the Langley Fine Arts School.

Recent publications include White Album (Innana Publications) a volume of Northcott’s paintings and Rishma Dunlop’s poetry launched in the fall of 2009.
