Jennifer Linton

Jennifer Linton is a guest artist at the Lilith Gallery. Her work is similar to Cindy Sherman's in that she uses herself as the model on a regular basis. Her works have a quirky/funny side to them. Her works are for sale at www.jenniferlinton.ca.

The primary focus of Linton’s artistic practice is to address gender-related issues and represent the experiences of women. Inspired by the second wave feminists, who coined the phrase ‘the personal is political’, Linton’s work reflects her personal experiences filtered through the lens of art history, mythology and popular culture. In her series of drawings entitled “The Bitter Seed” (2000), she combined family photographs with the ancient Greek legend of Persephone as a means to address the difficult territory of child abuse. Similarly, in the series “St. Ursula and the Eleven Thousand Virgins” (2003) Linton masqueraded as St. Ursula, the patron saint of schoolgirls, and transformed her into a guardian angel/sword-wielding avenger for the purposes of exploring themes of abuse, female sexuality and the concept of virginity.

Most recently, Linton's work continues her diaristic approach to image-making with an exploration of pregnancy & motherhood. As her role as primary caregiver to her child develops and evolves, so too does the content of the work to reflect the many corollary issues relating to motherhood, including gender identity, sexuality and body image. Linton's aim is to present an honest and unsentimentalized view of motherhood that challenges the clichéd images often found in the mainstream media.

Jennifer Linton is a Canadian artist living in Toronto. She was born in North Vancouver, British Columbia in 1968. She studied graphic design and art & art history at the University of Toronto and Sheridan College. Between 1992 and 2005 she has had seven solo exhibitions and numerous group exhibitions.
