Artist Statement

Artist Statement: In celebration of the biodiversity of our oceans, and of World Octopus Day on October 8th, this piece features ten of the nearly 300 known species of octopus that inhabit waters around the globe. As an artist and as a human, I find so much delight in exploring the variations between species: the delicate translucency of one, the bold, riotous patterning covering the form of another. The longer we look, the more bizarre, and gorgeous, and precious our world becomes. We must protect what has not already been lost during this age of human-driven mass extinction. Clockwise from top: Giant Pacific, Ghost, Caribbean Reef, Starry Night, Octopus Wolfi, California Two Spot, Coconut, Larger Pacific Striped, Greater Blue Ring, with Pacific Red Octopus eggs and hatchlings.

Artist Bio

Zoe Keller

A Woodstock, New York native, Zoe Keller's creative upbringing in the rural Catskills shaped her future as an artist and amateur naturalist. After graduating from the Maryland Institute College of Art, Keller made homes and studios in Minneapolis, Philadelphia, on the rocky Maine coast, in West Michigan's farm country, Eastern Oregon's Wallowa Mountains, and in Portland, Oregon, where she currently resides. Keller uses graphite and Procreate to create large-scale, meticulously rendered visual narratives. Placing a special focus on at-risk species and wildlands, Keller weaves drawings that explore the interconnectedness of fragile, vanishing ecosystems. By highlighting the biodiversity at risk in the Anthropocene her work aims to inspire reverence for the natural world and action to defend what we have left.
