ArtRage 2009

Similarly with VCE TopArts, there's TCE Top Arts too.. Tasmania's Certificate of Education Top Artworks were held at Queen Victoria Museum. From my previous post, I've secretly taken some shots of the TopArts final works, keeping the guards out of sight. It's been a priviledge to have witness the top artworks of Year 11 & 12 Art Student's final artworks. Though each state, each individual has it's unique sense of style. I've personally enjoyed the TCE final works in compared to Top Arts. I've looked into both technical skills and individuality, Melbourne artworks had a variety of realistic drawing and painting artworks, as for Tasmania's range.. I've really really enjoyed looking at student's exploration with different materials in photography along with their mixmedia collection. Absolutely love love love.

Examiners Commentary

In this particular collection of work by Katherine Goudsouzian the exploration into the medium of photographic montage demonstrates an unusual and captivating study of the interior of an old house. Not only beds, basins and chairs feature, but on closer inspection certain human body parts can be discerned. The result is a lively and yet mysterious insight into how photography can be manipulated in order to compel the viewer to venture closer.
