Well I am down to the final few days before my show and looking forward to the drive north: to see the fall colours on the way and spend a weekend in North Bay on the shores of Lake Nipissing. A word from Joan Ferneyhough the gallery director:
Ferneyhough Contemporary is pleased to present an exhibition of new works by Susan Farquhar entitled Image Landings.
Inspired by the dynamic organic environment of the Boreal Zone of Northern Ontario, Farquhar builds her images through layers of prints, drawings, texture and collage. Her visual imagery reflects her response to the changing nature of Canadian identity. Among the new works will be a large format (44″ x 77″) triptych consisting of two layers, a background of three black Stonehenge papercuts and the foreground three white washi papercuts.
Originally from North Bay, Farquhar began working as a visual artist and professional printmaker for artists in the 1980’s. She and her partner, Robert Game worked in two printmaking studios prior to establishing their own studio, Atelier GF in 1991 in downtown Toronto. They printed fine art prints in etching, silkscreen and relief until 2014.
Farquhar now devotes her time and skills to her own art practice.
A reception for the opening of this exhibition will take place Saturday, October 15 from 2 – 4 pm. The artist will be present. We hope you’ll join us.
