Linda Swanson is an artist whose interests are grounded in the metamorphic nature of ceramic materials and processes. Her work engages the enigmatic properties of matter at an elemental level and the capacity of wonder to question how and what we know. Her raw and kiln fired ceramic works have been exhibited in the United States, Canada and Europe with recent exhibitions at the Gardiner Museum in Toronto, the Musée National de Sèvres in France, Galateea Contemporary Art in Bucharest, Galerie Maria Lund in Paris, the DePaul Museum in Chicago and the Milwaukee Art Museum. Her research has been supported with grants from the FRQSC, the Canada Council and CALQ. Current projects center on the sustainable and innovative development of local applications uses and the invention of new ceramic materials in the fault zone between clay and glaze.
