Veronica de Nogales Leprevost, born in Barcelona, Spain in 1970, and Edwin Timothy Dam born in
Hamilton, Ontario, Canada in the  same year, did not meet until an exhibition in 1997 with the Generalitat de
Barcelona.  Discovering that they shared and intense curiosity for life, for nature and for sculpting the relation
of man within it, they married and soon after began exhibiting their works together.  Naturally, over a short
while, it became increasingly difficult to distinguish the works of one from the other...Wishing never to promote
a separation of what they considered a singular union, they began to sculpt together, cosigning each work they
created.  Now, residing in Canada, they continue to work intensely together between both countries of birth.

Biographical information
Veronica de Nogales Leprevost was born in Barcelona, Spain in
1970.  Her intense interest in art an in nature began at an early age,
manifesting itself in drawings and paintings of nature and of wildlife,
which took her as far as the snowy wooded regions of Sweden.  In 1988,
in the University of Bellas Artes of Barcelona, she began to undergo an
anatomical shift towards the study of human body movement, rendered
not only through two-dimensional mediums of painting, etching and
drawing, but also through the third and fourth dimensions of sculpture
and of dance.  Recognizing her talent, the Provincial Gallery of
Catalunya, Spain offered her a solo sculpture exhibition, first in Spain,
and soon after honoured her works in Paris.  Her works were soon taken
on by galleries in Spain and Brussels.

Edwin Timothy Dam, of Dutch and Friesian descent and native of
Hamilton,  Ontario, Canada began his sculptural interest and
anatomical studies at McMaster University.  Two years later he
transferred to Calvin College of Grand Rapids, Michigan, where he
underwent a polar shift in his studies to art, philosophy and literature.  
After graduation, he passed a short stint in creative writing for the
Canadian magazine industry, before moving to Vancouver, B.C. where
he joined a clay studio.  It was here while self employed in the trades
that  he began to experiment with  larger structures of mixed medium,
concrete, steel, wood and aluminum.  But it was his move to Barcelona
which was monumental where during an exhbition he met Veronica.  
With her encouragement, he entered and placed second in  the Pere
Jou Sculpture Competition in Sitges, Spain, beginning he career as
sculptor.

Married after eight months, they began to exhibit together, and then
through the combination of strengths and passions, began to create
together.  Their joint works took on a new aurora and attracted  the
attention both of prominent galleries in Spain and of the media.  
Combining the abstract with the figurative, and iron with bronze, their
works increased in magnitude and in power.  Now all works are done
together, signed under the unified name
Dam de Nogales.    Together
in the winter of 1999, they erected their first permanent outdoor
monument
El Espiritue del Bosque in Urus, a mountainous pueblo in
the north of Spain.  Later, that same year,  
Metamorphosis I and
Metamorphosis II went on public display in Barcelona, which was later
reinstalled in Italy.

Having sunk roots in Spain and the European art world, their move and
immigration to Canada, and taking of residence in southern Ontario,
though unexpected was not without reason.  Over and above their  
affinity to dance, literature, music and architecture,their intense
curiosity in nature, apparent in all of their works, almost predicted
settlement in a more tranquil  area.

In Septermber of 2001, they erected "
Words Towards Poesia", a
monumental work of bronze and steel, on the grounds of Bristol College,
Fall River, Massachusetts.  In October and January, they permanently
installed "
The Wandering Brute" and "Meditations over a Chair" on the
grounds of the Lay Sculpture Park of Louisiana, Missouri.  "
The
Sculptor's Palette
" now graces Hazelton street in the famous Yorkville of
Toronto, Ontario, Canada.  In November of 2002, "
The Poet",
commissioned by Martin County, FL,  was  installed in front of the new
Hoke Library, of Jensen Beach, Florida, USA.

2003 and 2004   saw the Canadian unveilings  of the Johnny Lombardi
Memorial  Sculpture, in Little Italy, Toronto, and of Rafaga--Unleashed
at Pier 8 of the Hamilton Waterfront, Hamilton, Ontario,  and of  the  
George F. Morris Memorial Sculpture, in Chatham , Ontario, and of  the
Passion-- 14 Stations of the Cross  in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.

2005-2006  saw the Unveilings of The Spirit of Discovery in Toronto,
Ontario and  "On the  Shoulders of Giants"  at the University of Toronto
as wekk as "Spirit of the Woods" in Ridgetown, Ontario.

2007 was celebrated the year of the Horse as the sculptors dedicated
themselves to three equestrian based works,  "Echoes of the Iron Horse"
for the main square of Highgate, Ontario,  "The Long Ascent" for
Victoria Park of North Vancouver, and a two works for  the Calgary
Stampede, Calgary, AB, installed in  2008.   December of 2007, the
sculptors through their studio in Spain unveilled   "Pincellades del
temps" in Sitges, Spain.

2008 also  saw the two  tonne monumental memorial to late poet Al
Purdy,
Voice of the Land,  installed in Queen's Park, next to the
Parliamentary Buildings, in Toronto, Ontario.  

In 2009, the sculptors installed  a work dedicated to the Sisters of St.
Joseph, upon the grounds of the Chatham General Hospital.
  

For 2010, yet another western sculpture was created for Andorra a
nation which is snuggled in the Pyrenees  between France and Spain. It
was created to stretch across the Plaza of the United States of America,
and the Plaza of the Immigrants.

Swale for the City of North Vancouver borrowed on our First Nations
traditions to result in a dynamic contemporary architectural work.

Since then, there has been another noticeable shift in their public
sculpture interventions, in that several works integrate lighting directly
into the works adding a night time ambiance in place-making projects.  
In 2014, The Wait for Me Daddy - WW2 Monument, became at one
time an abstract work of art at night while a  historic monument during
the day.  InScope (2015) for the U. of Alberta, has an interactive  life of
its own.  And
Blu-Under Cloud incorporates blu-tooth connectivity of
video projection and stereo sound interacting with the work, putting
many of the works at the cutting edge of todays art world.   Currently the
sculptors are working on another large scale A
ll Wars Memorial, another
set of  S
tations of the Cross,  The Open Mind Stage for Trinity School
for Children in Tampa, FL, USA, and yet another 4 horse equestrian
based work.  

They have covered a wide range of subject matter in their works.
Whether historical, monumental or contemporary public sculpture,
whether for churches, educactional institutions, or cities,  the sculptors
delve deeply into the subject matter and base their works in an intense
study of space and history, to create works that engage viewers of all
ages to create spaces of dialogue.  At one moment, they can be found
spinning molecules and protein structures, at another they are perusing
the pages of our nations poets;  often they  they partner  with architects,
urban designers, landscape architects, and structural engineers.  Their
combination of new technology with old world artistry has led to some
35 sculptures of Dam de Nogales which have become woven into our
social fabric.
