Renée Van Halm is an artist living and working in Vancouver, Canada. Selected solo exhibitions out of more than 30 over her career include Holding Pattern at Equinox Gallery in Vancouver (2020); Lean Back at Birch Contemporary in Toronto (2018); Shape of Things at the West Vancouver Art Museum (2017); Nudge at Equinox Gallery (2016), among others.

Van Halm’s work is in many prestigious collections including National Gallery of Canada, The Model Museum in Ireland, Vancouver Art Gallery, National Fine Arts Museum in Québec, The Montréal Museum of Fine Arts, The Polygon Gallery, Zabludowicz Collection in London (UK), and many more. Van Halm holds an MFA from Concordia University and a BFA from the Vancouver School of Art (now Emily Carr University of Art + Design). Van Halm is represented by Equinox Gallery and Birch Contemporary. In 2016, Van Halm worked with BAF at Façade Festival where she explored symmetry and combinations of intense colour – something not feasible with pigments, but something projection mapping could afford.
Van Halm states that cultural history and how we represent and inhabit architecture is fundamental to her work. Glow is a part of a series of small paintings that started in 2012; of this series, eight have been acquired by the National Gallery of Canada. The paintings in this series are inspires by the pages of fashion and décor magazines; they are based on collages and the backgrounds for the paintings were selected from these magazines. Van Halm reflects that the title Glow depicts light sources interpreted through contrasting colours. This work was completed around the time when Van Halm created her work for the Façade Festival for BAF. Glow is a unique work.
