Linda Briskin is a fine art photographer with ever-shifting photographic enthusiasms: light, lines, shadows, and the play of figure-ground; the juxtaposition of objects and reflections; the ambiguities in what we choose to see; and the permeability between the remembered and the imagined. Photo-collage is often used to construct unique and painterly images layered with nuance and narrative which both embrace and displace the original images. Her focus is less on capturing images than imagining and inventing them. Such an approach is fictive rather than representational. In 2018, Briskin was selected for The New Feminist Gaze at Simeon Den Gallery in California. Her photograph 'Motorcycle Women' was published in Best of Photography 2018 by Photographers Forum. Recently in Toronto, she had a solo show at Helen & Hildegard Apothecary as part of the Junction Contact Festival, a window installation at Cutler & Gross, and participated in numerous group shows including Spectra at Gallery 1313 during the Contact Photography Festival. Upcoming are 'This is not a shoe store', a window installation at Rapp Optical, and 'Luminous', a group show of ten women photographers at the Heliconian Club in Toronto.
