Ness Lee's practice is an investigation with experiences of intimacy and self explorations in love and distance. Rather than the emphasis on the physical form, the emotional resonance and presence is brought to focus in periods of vulnerability, discomfort and acceptance. With various mediums, she explores and echoes these emotions in different parts, encompassing its tactile experience into one that is filled with a depth of feeling, playing on humourous rhythms.
Ness Lee is an illustrator/artist based in Toronto. Her Illustrations have been chosen for award publications such as American Illustration and The Society of Illustrators. She has had her editorial works featured in magazines such as Lucky Peach and BUST Magazine. Alongside illustration she explores and challenges a variety of mediums- more recently in ceramics and wood. Her works play with notions of emotional physicality, growth and self love.

Hazel Meyer is an interdisciplinary artist who works with installation, performance, and textiles to investigate the relationships between sport, sexuality, feminism, and material culture. Her work aims to recover the queer aesthetics, politics, and bodies often effaced within histories of sports and recreation. Drawing on archival research, she designs immersive installations that bring various troublemakers—lesbians-feminists, gender outlaws, leather-dykes—into the performative spaces of athletics.
Recent projects include a solo exhibition at MacLaren Art Centre (Barrie) and a public art commission for Cambridge Gallery’s Idea Exchange. In 2015 she was Scrap Metal Gallery’s (Toronto) inaugural artist in residence, where she produced a large-scale installation and public performance based on her ongoing project Muscle Panic (2014– ). She is currently at work on an iteration of Muscle Panic for the CAG in Vancouver. As part of her ongoing collaboration with Cait McKinney on the history of tools within queer social movements, she is developing Tape Condition: degraded, an exhibition and series of public programs at the Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives (2016, Toronto). Hazel holds an MFA from OCAD University (Toronto) and a BFA from Concordia University (Montréal).
