The Langley Centennial Museum is welcoming the colder, darker days of winter with a punch of colour and creativity in its current show, figure & ground: The Works of Suzanne Northcott, Janice Robertson, Susan Falk, and Lalita Hamill.

The exhibit opened in November and continues until Jan. 8.

The original concept for this exhibition was to feature a group of artists who have mastery over their respective representations of figurative and landscape works; artists who have given balanced focus and attention to both subjects over a period of years, and could therefore contribute to a theme based on the two genres of painting.

The identification and selection of the participating artists was made by the Museum’s Manager, Peter Tulumello.

“Susan J. Falk, Lalita Hamill, Suzanne Northcott and Janice Robertson are talented and accomplished artists from our community, whose works are unique and visually exciting,” said Tulumello.

“I felt that each artist, in their diverse approach to landscape and figurative painting, presented an interesting range of work.”

Although Tulumello came up with the original exhibit idea, it was Northcott who selected the title and explained how figure and ground connected all of their works — through an explanation of hers.

“In my own work, the exploration of that which could be considered the objective content of the painting and the ‘rest’ of the painting is fascinating,” Northcott said.

“I like to play with that relationship, creating ambiguity between the two aspects, and wonder about the connection of that relationship to our own ideas about our perceived separateness from what surrounds us.”

“It’s such a vibrant show,” said Arts and Heritage Curator Kobi Christian.

“And it’s been great to work with such a fantastic group of professionals.  Seeing the process of how each artist has come to the theme and filtered it through her own lens has been really intriguing.”
