About the Artist

In a narrative that looks at the idea of passage as both a means of access and a turning point or crossroads – my most recent series of prints offers up a simplified visual logic that acts as a mirror to the human condition. Dark humour prevails as anthropomorphic forms evolving from underground tunnels, caves and rail systems play at the boundary between visual sign and physical trigger. Through the overt appropriation of sign-like shapes and the manipulation of specific cultural and physical sign significations; multiple and conflicting readings are encouraged to play out. In the print edition entitled Empire Hazard for example, specific use of colour and pattern allow for culturally derived symbolic references to overlap and conflate. (Excerpt from artist statement)

Suzanne Nacha is an artist working in painting, printmaking, installation and video. Through the systematic abstraction and anthropomorphism of industrial and natural landscapes, she seeks to make iconic images that act as psychological mirrors to human experience. Her work has been exhibited in Canada, the United States and Europe and represented in public and private collections, including the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade, the National Bank of Canada, The Donovan Collection and the Robert McLaughlin Gallery. Born in Hamilton Ontario Canada, she holds degrees in both Fine Art and Geology. She has taught in the Fine Art departments of OCAD, Sheridan/UTM and York University, and for the past fifteen years has worked in the mining industry mapping geographies of fortune and need.
