Sleuth of Bears gathers playfully around the familiar sense of home. The sculptures invite a moment of pause to reflect upon the magnificent creatures, whose territories have extended throughout Lynn Valley and across BC. For survival, bears must travel great distances through the forest in search of natural food, and as people encroach on their habitat they have little choice but to travel through residential areas. Understanding and compassion are essential.

About the Artists:
Veronica de Nogales Leprevost, born in Barcelona in 1970, and Edwin Timothy Dam, born in Hamilton, Ontario in the same year, met at an art exhibition in 1997 at the Gereralitat de Barcelona. Discovering that they shared an intense curiosity for life, nature and sculpting, they married and began exhibiting together. Over time it became increasingly difficult to distinguish the works of one from the other so they began to sculpt together, co-signing each work that they created. Now residing in Canada, the pair create large scale public sculptures.
