Presented by: Linda-Marlena Ross
March 2, 2020
Linda-Marlena Ross, is an artist/photographer originally from British Columbia, now living in Montreal.
The built environment (also known as built world), urban development, and the conflict between nature and urban habitat is a recurring theme in her work. Themes of isolation and tension, between the individual and the urban and natural environment are continuing motifs. Her urban landscapes are viewed through an unusual and different lens, giving us a very different perspective.
Her photography is part of the Art and Heritage Collection at the McGill University Health Centre/MUHC.
She recently participated in photo exhibitions in Brooklyn and New York, The Gardiner Museum in Toronto. Other exhibitions include La Maison de l’architecture du Québec et La Maison du développement durable, Montreal, La Galerie McClure, Montreal, Propeller Gallery, Toronto.
She graduated from Concordia University in 2008, in photography and video.
