Artist Bio:

Rosemary Sloot received her B.F.A. from The Nova Scotia College of Art and Design during its hey-day in the mid 70’s studying under Eric Fischl. She obtained an M.V.A in painting from The University of Alberta and a B. Ed. from The University of Western Ontario. She was a part-time painting instructor for twenty-two years, teaching at Lakehead University in Thunder Bay in the early 80’s and has been painting for forty years. She has work in public collections in Canada and private collection in North America and abroad. Her most recent traveling exhibition was IMMIGRANT which dealt with her family’s immigration experience to Canada from The Netherlands in the years following W.W. ll. and she is currently working on a book about the show to be published this year.

Artist Statement:

This chalk pastel on black paper is part of a series of works I produced using plant imagery as my source of inspiration. Lilies were of particular interest to me because my grandfather grew them in The Netherlands for his parish church. The plant based work I produced in the 70’s was highly illusionistic and in water colour. Now the images lack specificity, are out of focus and quite abstract so that the viewer is drawn towards the light as the image emerges out of the darkness.
