.By Peeraya Koykul:
I experienced an existential crisis at the end of year twelve, which was a hard time for me to get back from. During this phase, a lot of my pieces used mediums such as pencil, charcoal and pens. I think that monotone is simplistic, but expresses my distress at the time fairly well. By Shela Riva:
I found a central topic that interested me and has been a recurring theme throughout my recent pieces: beauty, and the social standard to be ‘beautiful’.
This was a topic that was fascinating to stem pieces from, [and I was] provided with inspiration all around me. The course allowed me to not only broach themes of social reflection from my perspective but also very personal topics close to my family and myself.
By Juliana Huber:
My artwork is based on the theme of nature. Initially, the influence was observable: trees, the ocean and insects.
However, as I continued to experiment and explore ideas, I became influenced by abstract nature. Predominately, nature in the larger sense: human nature, decaying nature and the causes and effects of both. Nature is perhaps the most predominant thing in the world, it is in everything.
