Some of the artwork from Queen Anne’s pupils being displayed at the Foundation Schools’ Art Exhibition includes:
‘White Ceramic Form’ was designed by Beatrice Wilkin, U6, as part of her A2 Level work. Beatrice, who made the piece entirely out of ceramics, said “I’m interested in universal symbols and geometry in nature and I’m fascinated by the relationship between the Golden Section and the Fibonacci sequence. My piece of ceramics represents all of these. I have taken inspiration for my work from land artist Robert Smithson, Richard Long’s Fibonacci walks and the work of sculptor Peter Randall-Page.”
Another piece of A2 Level work on display at the exhibition is ‘Inside, outside in between’, a painting designed by Palin Ansusinha, U6, using acrylics on board. Palin explained her inspiration behind her painting by saying, “Hamilton’s work inspired me to extend my representation of the relationship between reality and the media further. Advertising – it’s seductive and desire, provoking elements of soft-focus images depicting the magnetic irresistible quality of advertisements that prompt our consumerism in contemporary society. The Botox syringe is a subtle reminder of the dubious credibility of the seductive image portrayed.”
