CONGRADULATIONS TO OUR

2018 ZOOMINESCENCE ARTISTS COMPETITION WINNERS:

ROBYN HAMEL

Kinetic Seascape

Robyn Hamel is a Vancouver based environmental artist. Her work explores the line between dream and reality while speaking to the health of the ocean. By personifying the ocean as a “humanoid” female being in her paintings, she seeks to guide her viewer through an environmental dreamscape on contemporary ocean issues.

Utilizing a drawing style technique, nighttime neon palette, and re-imagined seascapes, Hamel creates a narrative of foreboding and persistence in her paintings. New-school tattoo, contemporary painter Michael Hussar, and environmental activism photography influence Hamel’s work. Her paintings seek to instill change and activism in her viewer toward a healthier future for the planet. 

ERIK NORDENHOF

Field of Flowers

Flociety and its many members have been creating interactive environments, art installations, stages, and performances at a wide variety of festivals and venues, both local and abroad. Their large and growing team thrives on collaboration and contribution, as many experts in their own fields come together on each project to ensure an outcome that will bring a smile to everyone. 

Field of Flowers, although the brainchild of Erik Nordenhof, would not have been possible without the contributions of ideas, abilities, and efforts of the Flociety crew.

HELP BUILD OUR ZOO!

It is through today’s zoos that future generations will come to a greater understanding of the human impact on the natural world and be motivated to preserve it and reverse the damage already done. Every donation, big or small, helps us revitalize our beloved Edmonton Valley Zoo! Thank you for caring for the animals, our children's future and the planet!
