Congratulations to Year 11 GCSE Art & Design student Annie who won a Lower School Art Competition for the 2nd half of the Autumn Term with a large-scale painting. She explains:
‘These traditional Chinese masks are used in China to bring a blessing and to drive away the evil spirits. I have used them in my idea to show how the mask can hide your identity and with that will hide you from bad things in life. Flowers symbolise beautiful things in life and are a reminder that we always need hope. The brush in the middle of the painting represents the importance of colour in life which again connotes a sense of hope and optimism.’
Congratulations also to Arda and Oscar from Year 11 GCSE Art and Design course, who are sharing a second place in the competition: Arda for his excellent print on abuse of animals through medical experimentation; and Oscar for a dry point needle print communicating how we, by using petrol cars, are destroying the ozone layer of the planet and ae endangering the lives of people on Earth.
