Congratulations to the four Mansfield students who have represented our school in the Creative Generation Excellence in Visual Art Awards.
Angie Lau and Dinalka Wicknamasinghe's work was recently on display at the Regional Metropolitan Exhibition, Brisbane Institute of Art. Sunny Kwon received a regional encouragement award and Rheanna Selby-Stubbs has received an excellence award. Due to this significant achievement her work, Bare will be on display in the Gallery of Modern Art, Southbank early next year. We are so proud of these hard working and committed students who have displayed excellence in the Visual Arts.
Rheanna Selby-Stubbs' work Bare challenges the Western World's unrealistic beauty standards for young women. My work, “promotes a contemporary muse - one that will teach girls that it is normal to gain weight or exhibit imperfections".
Fractal Terrain, by Sunny Kwon, transports the audience to an imaginary landscape, one where nature can be viewed from a new perspective. The artwork evokes appreciation for the beauty of mathematical fractals within our natural world.
Angie Lau explores the political climate in Hong Kong. She represents the eroding freedom experienced by the Hong Kong people in her artwork.
Dinalka Wickramasinghe's “Forbidden" nature explores the feelings of guilt, shame and the lack of control, that many people with Bulimia experience that seems to fuel the binge-purge cycle. The artwork exposes the burden of keeping the condition secret as well as the additional stress and anxiety the disorder causes.
