SUSAN WILLCOCKS<br />

Canada<br />

Young Canadian artist Susan Willcocks is<br />

currently studying Studio Arts in Montreal.<br />

As a teenager, she made a personal promise<br />

to use the impact of art to make a difference<br />

in someone’s world. Her works, in varied<br />

genres (drawing, painting, photography and<br />

sculpture), have been seen in solo and group<br />

exhibitions in various regions of her home<br />

province of Québec.<br />

Growing up in a small, multicultural village,<br />

Susan was immersed in two very different and<br />

often antagonistic cultures: Québecoise and<br />

Anglophone. Living in two distinct linguistic<br />

traditions during her formative years, she<br />

became intrigued by the concept of language.<br />

She observed that, while a language may<br />

be incoherent noise to a non-speaker, some<br />

sounds are universally recognisable: laughter,<br />

the sounds of joy and the sounds of sorrow.<br />

Music also has the power to transcend<br />

linguistic barriers, to be felt, experienced<br />

and lived by every single being<br />

on our planet. It creates a bridge for<br />

humanity, making the world one.<br />

Willcocks explores this theme visually in her<br />

works donated to the Acrylic Melody initiave:<br />

Explosion of Sound and Unum.<br />
