St George’s Art 2010 was launched last night by Art Gallery of WA Director, Stefano Carboni, who also awarded prizes to nine selected artworks.

In his speech, Stefano Carboni offered advice and praise to the students present at the exhibition launch, commenting on the remarkable skill and maturity of the young artists, and looking forward to seeing some of their work in future Year 12 Perspectives exhibitions at the Art Gallery of Western Australia.

Rapidly becoming regarded as a stepping stone to Perspectives, St George’s Art is WA’s premier art exhibition for students in Years 10-12.

Now in its eighth year, the exhibition has this year grown to include work from 38 high schools in all educational sectors.

The Dean was particularly pleased to see students from the government, Catholic and independent sectors all represented in the exhibition. Judges praised the high standard of work overall, which made their decisions particularly difficult this year and led to an additional prize in the Highly Commended section.

THE WINNERS ARE ...

Overall Winner and 2D Category Winner: Laura Manzi, John Curtin College of the Arts, You Are What You See (acrylic)

Laura_Manzi_2D__Overall_Winner_You_Are_What_You_See

This Gittoes-inspired painting delves into the shocking realities of body image.

I’ve focused on using intense colours, where, like Gittoes’ work, the overpowering colour focuses on strengthening the subject.

I want to make a stand against the negatives of body image, distorting the way in which people see themselves in their reflections.

The individuals become what they see and perceive as a reflection.

3D Category Winner: Katherine Winslade, Penrhos College, for Dilectio Lacerosus (Love Muscle) (mixed media)

Katherine_Winslade_3D_Winner_Dilectio_Lacerosus_Love_MuscleMy work focuses on the condition of the heart at different stages of a woman’s life: romance, the maternal bond and independence.

My triptych is sculptural in form, using different media to communicate meaning.

Dada influenced my work. I used mechanical devices to create organic forms and a combination of Latin text and ready-made objects to signify the scientific.

A change of heart is essential for women to adapt to the different stages of their lives.

- Katherine Winslade


Digital Category Winner: Hannah Ryan, Warnbro Community High School, for Misted Lights (photography)

Hannah_Ryan_Digital_Winner_Misted_LightsThrough my work, I have tried to convey a sense of uncertainty.

Using blurred, painted light gestures in a familiar suburban scene and by giving little information in my photograph, I have created curiosity and left the viewer with a sense of being unsure, posing questions like: What could these lights possibly be? Whose identity is being obscured?

I have used a combination of long exposure and some digital manipulation in this work.”
