Malin / Galellis Artist Talk: Edmonton, AB

EAC : Artist Talk Public Art in Conversation with Lynn Malin & Nicole Galellis

Edmonton artist Lynn Malin created Elemental, a series of 24 abstract plexiglass panels for the new Cardinal Collins High School. The artwork is inspired by the ancient Grecian belief in the four elements (air, water, fire, earth) and changing face of scientific knowledge.

Inspired by Borden Park’s colourful history as a recreational hub, Edmonton’s Nicole Galellis created Carousel, a mural for the new park pavilion. The work responds to the circular shape of the pavilion and its imagery recalls merry-go-rounds, swings, and fair rides.
