"Jennifer Linton: St. Ursula and the Eleven Thousand Virgins"
2003-07-24 until 2003-08-09
Red Head Gallery
Toronto, ON, CA Canada

Red Head Gallery is pleased to present new work by Toronto based artist Jennifer Linton. The exhibition, St. Ursula and the Eleven Thousand Virgins, features images of Linton herself masquerading as St. Ursula, the patron saint of school girls. Linton's drawings and etchings fuse emotion with religious iconography to explore themes of female sexuality, the concept of virginity, and the difficult territory of child abuse.

Blood transforms into flowers and kilt-clad school girls behead monsters in fantastical drawings that combine equal parts camp and catharsis.

Linton was born in North Vancouver, B.C., in 1968. She received a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Toronto and a Fine Arts diploma from Sheridan College in Oakville, both in 1992. She presently lives and works in Toronto. The artist wishes to acknowledge the support of the Ontario Arts Council and the City of Toronto through the Toronto Arts Council
