Michael Davey is a sculptor and installation artist who employs photography, drawing and video and whose work often includes cast materials and found objects.  His interests in landscape, industrial technology and the built environment find their way into his pieces which have been shown and collected throughout Canada, the U.S. and overseas.  His most recent initiative is the establishment of M9 Contemporary Art  Centre on the Bruce Peninsula, Ontario  where he exhibits along with guest artists on an annual basis.
