About the Artists:

Cheryl Hamilton is a conceptual artist with a penchant for visual ingenuity. A stickler for perfection, Cheryl imbues her design work with a kineticism inspired by her education as an animator at Vancouver’s Emily Carr University of Art and Design. Her training in glass blowing at Alberta’s Red Deer College and Pilchuck Glass School, coupled with her metal working expertise, enable her to animate light and colour within her monumental steel structures.

Michael Vandermeer is a sculptor whose current artistic practice is informed by his love of science and his training in Physics. With a remarkable aptitude for engineering, metallurgy, electronics, and chemistry, Michael broadens the studio’s palette to include unique materials and technologies.
