Suzanne Nacha

Suzanne Nacha works in painting, sculpture and animation. Creating idiosyncratic worlds as sites for narrative exploration, she balances humour, pathos and anthropomorphic tendencies to examine our relationship to geologic and industrial landscape. Informed by her experiences mapping the far-reaches of Canada, creating geologic maps that span the earth’s continents and the study of structural geology; Nacha’s imagery draws playfully from both geology and the visual arts. Having received her MFA from York University in 2003, she has exhibited in Canada, the United States and Europe. Her work is represented in public and private collections, including the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade, the National Bank of Canada, and the Robert McLaughlin Gallery.

    Works in Practice

    Featuring works derived from the unique creative practices of Cassils, Suzanne Nacha, Roula Partheniou, and Gordon Shadrach, Works in Practice explores the use of photography and image-making by artists whose practices are centred in the mediums of performance, painting, and sculpture. Using a range of methods, the artists capture photographs at various stages of their process as a means of ideation, translation, and documentation.
