Susan Northcott and David Kimura have their first show of combined artwork running until Nov. 15.

Married Langley artists exhibit together for the first time

Langley artists Suzanne Northcott and David Kimura show their artwork in their first joint exhibit.

If, in the words of Henry Ford, “working together is success,” Langley’s Suzanne Northcott and her husband David Kimura are very successful. The pair of artists have been working together locally and opened their first shared exhibit yesterday at the Fort Gallery.

Translations is a blend of Northcott’s Pondscapes painting collection and Kimura’s photography, film, and bronze sculpture.

“It’s the first time David and I have shown together,” Northcott said. “It’s his first show in decades… his first Canadian show.”

Kimura has been living and sculpting in Langley with Northcott full-time for a few years. He had been living in Seattle running a successful design business before returning his focus to art.

“We live at our studio right now,” added Northcott. “It’s a space that we’ve been using for the last couple of years. We have a very peaceful, kind of removed life here where we can work in close proximity.”

One of Kimura’s sculptures is in the garden behind the Fort Gallery; a garden which he designed and is in the process of creating.

“His sculpture has always been in the garden,” Northcott said.

The Translations exhibition runs until Nov. 15 at the gallery at 9048 Glover Rd. in Fort Langley with an opening event on Oct. 30 from 7 to 9 p.m.

“There is a definite vibe,” noted Northcott of the combined work being shown in the gallery  together. “The vibe is peaceful and complex at the same time. The work invites you into space in a way… it’s a moment where things are on their way from one place to another.”

Many of Kimura’s photographs of the local area reflect this change and shift of the landscape in relation to human existence. Northcott’s work explores a subtle, complex world beyond cultivation.
