He uses traditional and digital media tools, in a wide-ranging visual art practice that incorporates print & photomedia, painting, sculpture and public artworks. Vermey’s approach to creativity is to make ideas central to the art-making process.

Vermey has a substantial exhibition history and maintains an ongoing studio practice. His primary field of endeavour is site specific commissioned artworks for the public realm. He frequently works in collaboration with architects and other professionals on artworks for integration within the fabric of buildings.

Through hands-on experience, he has acquired a breadth of skills and expertise covering the conceptual, technical and aesthetic aspects of artistic design, along with a depth of knowledge about production of artworks for the public realm.

About Dawn Gamblen

Dawn Gamblen graduated from Curtin University of Technology (Fine Art) in 2002 after three years at Claremont School of Art majoring in sculpture. Dawn's art practice focuses upon the creation of site-specific sculptural works that respond to their surrounding environment and encourage active and imaginative responses from the viewer. Much of her public art practice has been concerned with change & movement - both implied and actual, with lighting increasingly becoming a significant part of this. Her interest lies in creating artworks that are inclusive of the local environment and the viewer. Her strong interest in nature, movement, physics, science and biology, has been used in the past as both a medium for, and as the expressed idea within her artworks. Now working as a member of the artist team Midnight Tuesday she is continuing to create large scale, sculptural commissions for public spaces.
