Journey shared through art

The 22nd annual Art Gallery of WA exhibition will feature 56 works by graduating Year 12 visual art students from across WA from February 26.

Among the works will be two pieces by Lake Joondalup Baptist College graduates ” a mixed medium painting called A Little Light by Daisy Coyle (Currambine) and Ocean Reef resident Anja Heremann’s painting Zacchhaeus and Psyche.

Another two graduates from Prendiville Catholic College will have paintings hanging on the gallery walls ” The Haecceity and Subjugation of Cognition by Nick Extract (Ocean Reef) and two-part portraits They wouldn’t treat Miranda Kerr like this and You’re not a Supermodel Seamus by Clare McGeever (Carramar).

Landsdale resident Kaylene Bederson created a clay and acrylic sculpture while at Mindarie Senior College last year, which is about half a metre tall and called Survivor.

An oil painting by Hillarys resident and Hale School graduate Christopher Corlett, Summer Days, will also feature in the exhibition.

Gallery director Stefano Carboni said the works explored a breadth of themes such as personal identity, concern for the environment and society, and the journey to adulthood.

Visitors to the gallery will be able to vote for their favourite piece in the Santos Year 12 Perspectives people’s choice award.

Voting will close on April 27, and artworks will be included in an online gallery at artgallery.wa.gov.au/exhibitions/Year-12-Perspectives-2013.asp.
