b. 1971, Canada
Nancy Friedland is an artist investigating narrative, landscape, and darkness in her work. After studying photography at the Ontario College of Art and Design she completed her MFA at the Rochester Institute of Technology as a Sir Edmund Walker Scholar. She has received grants from the Ontario Arts Council and the Canada Council for the Arts, and has exhibited across Canada and internationally. In the past three years she has been exploring these same preoccupations through paint. Working mostly with her own photographs as source material, she is drawn to the magic that happens in the flawed translation from one medium to the next.
She lives and works in Toronto.
