Jennie Suddick is a multi-disciplinary artist based in Toronto, Canada who has exhibited in Canada, the U.S., Europe and Asia.
Influenced by the ethos of her printmaking background, her work explores the of seeking a personal bond to places, images or objects that are shared, repeated, and accessible, despite often being artificially manufactured or reproduced.
Her role as an educator has also branched out into both her personal and collaborative practices, and the line between all these two are constantly blurring, with community engagement and interactivity being prevalent considerations. This includes the collaboration Crazy Dames with urban planner Sara Udow, creating a dialogue that embraces the role of the artist in interdisciplinary projects.
Suddick earned her Masters of Fine Arts from York University and holds both a Bachelor of Fine Arts and Advanced Visual Studies Certificate from OCAD University. Her solo projects have recently been featured at The Varley Art Gallery, Harbourfront Centre and as part of Land|Slide: Possible Futures at The Markham Museum and The Shenzhen &Hong Kong Bi-city Biennale of Urbanism/Architecture.
She is currently Manager, International Projects &Partnerships at OCAD U, and recently held positions as an Assistant Professorat OCAD U and a Lecturer at Ryerson University in the School of CreativeIndustries. She was the recipient of the OCAD U 2017 Non-Tenured Teaching Award and served as the Associate Chair of Contemporary Painting and Print Media from 2014-2017.
