ANOTHER HSC milestone was reached last week when Year 12 Visual Arts students submitted their major projects for marking.

The artworks showcased creative talents in a vast array of artist areas including painting, sculpture, photography and graphic design.

Olivia Bartley, from Tea Gardens, created a photomedia project titled “Inconsolable” consisting of a series of three prints capturing a female face in a milk bath.

The Bulahdelah Central School student said she was inspired by the feminist views of Australian artist Del Kathryn Barton.

“I particularly like the way she portrays female beauty,” Olivia said.

“In my work, the murky unclear water of the milk bath and the use of make-up on the face represent a way of masking the insecurities of the female subject.”

Olivia is pleased with the colour and clarity of her finished work and said she would like to extend the theme further and capture more images.

The popping candy-like colours used by contemporary Japanese artist Takashi Murakami were the inspiration behind Charlie Brown’s sculpture titled “And Then X 2082, (Star Edition.)“

Speaking with News Of The Area, Charlie said her artwork took more than six months to complete.

“I starting making the thousands of paper stars needed to complete my sculpture back in February,” she said.

“The tiny stars all needed to be strung individually and assembled separately which took eight weeks alone.”

Charlie said the title of her sculpture reflects the 2082 stars used to create her work.

Other artworks submitted include an oil pastel painting by Charlie Burns, graphic designs by Kyle Shultz and Noah Pholi-Harris, a collection of photographs and paintings by Bonnie Mirisch, Kant Richardson’s series of etchings and Luana White’s Multimedia paintings.

The artworks were transported to a central marking centre last week and will contribute to 50 percent of the final HSC mark for the subject.
