Energies

10/09/2013

“Energies” is a regional Art exhibition which promotes the place of visual art in the curriculum. It aims to present diverse examples of excellent standard visual artwork to the public.  Year 12 Keebra Art student, Tahlia De Petro was selected to exhibit her piece titled “Skin Deep”. This large mixed media work on canvas reflected excellence in creative endeavour and will be displayed at the Gold Coast City Art Gallery.

Congratulations Tahlia!

Statement by the artist: “Skin Deep” exposes the judgements we make as we go about our modern day ‘witch’ hunts!...Which witch? The fat one, the thin one, the intellectually challenged, the physically disabled one, the shy one? Crows, thorns, rotting apples, nooses, wrinkles, warts….all very stereotypical symbols I have used with which the viewer can associate. Subtle, they are not. Neither are the judgements of the narrow-minded who are so concerned with outward appearances.
