A KALAMUNDA artist on the cusp of adolescence has won The People’s Choice HyperVision art competition at Midland Gate Shopping Centre in the City of Swan’s 9th annual competition.

Hayley Kerr (12) of Kalamunda Senior High School, was voted the most popular artist with her composition My Other Self.

She described her artwork as her perception of reality.

“I am a lover of art and colour. We all have parts of ourselves that we hide – yet they are always with us. They are our day to day reality,” she said.

Midland Gate centre manager Jacqueline McKenzie said the judges were delighted with Hayley’s use of balance and tension in her work, noting her “outstanding quality of work for such a young artist”.

Designed to support youth development through contemporary art, HyperVision aims to inspire young artists to explore their skills and encourage more active involvement of culture in community.

Works were available for viewing in the shopping centre for most of July.

As the winner of the people’s choice competition, Hayley received a $1000 prize from Midland Gate.
