Artist Bio / CV
Naomi London (b. 1963, Montréal) is a multidisciplinary visual artist working in performance/sculpture and drawing. She earned an MFA from the University of Southern California, and a BFA from Concordia University, Montréal. Her project – One Gargantuan Optimistic Metaphor (of which Espoir is a part), was inspired by a curiosity about aspects of happiness, and how optimism plays a role. Her work is often designed to involve the viewer as an active participant, as with Espoir where the public is invited to sit on and move the giant letters. Recent exhibitions include: Sweets, hope and the passage of time: three projects, Musée d’art de Joliette, 2005, which is touring to the Art Gallery of Calgary in September. Informal Books, Open Studio, Toronto, (September, 2006), and Tree House, Saidye Bronfman Centre, Montréal, (July, 2006). She lives and works in Montréal, (Québec).
