Video Interview with visual artist Suzanne Northcott

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, painting, drawing and creative process instructor. As workshop leader, Suzanne takes groups to exotic locales combining painting and yoga instruction with cultural excursions. She has been guest instructor at UBC, Capilano College, York University, Trinity Western University and the Langley Fine Arts School.

A new book, White Album (Innana Publications) of Northcott's paintings and Rishma Dunlop's poetry was launched in the fall of 2009.
