About the Artists

Off the rack
Sam Garmulewicz (Coasted Imagery)
Vancouver’s iconic architecture, industry, nature, and culture through a reality-shifted lens.

I often forget names, but always remember faces. Raised with love on the West Coast, photography has always been a calling. By immersing myself into digital imagery, I can now exhibit what I see and what I feel.

There are many sides to my bed, but whether I open my eyes in mania, depression, or anywhere in between, I know if I can find common ground with myself I can move forward. I don’t always find beauty in the same places, but if I look hard enough it’s always somewhere.

Lu Busca (Lubufoto)
Photography capturing the spaces in between moments.

Lu Busca is a Canadian-born Uruguayo living and working on unceded Squamish, Tsleil-Waututh, and Musqueam Territory.

His art is inspired by the concept of 'liminality' - the spaces inbetween and the ways in which we cross them.

Sarah Hatherly
Dot-work inspired by nature, love, and tattoos.

I never thought I could draw until I discovered pointillism while practicing stick-and-poke tattoos. Impatient and afraid to make a mistake, my drawings always felt rushed and unfinished.

Creating a piece, dot by dot, forces me to slow down and focus on each step of the process. While it may take days to get there, every point of the journey is a meditation on the little things we do, contributing to something much bigger. There are no mistakes - it’s just part of the process of creation.
