Zai’s A Level art work

Leave a comment

A Level art pupil Zai had just been putting up a display of her fascinating work when the roving camera stopped by in the senior art room in the last week of term.  Zai describes the first piece pictured below:

“This piece shows a pain-filled girl in a world where she is not socially accepted. I used the grindy, run-down background to give the piece an other-worldly quality as if it is crumbling. The girl’s different-coloured eyes and horns give her an alien appearance and the fading graffiti tells her story against a background reflecting her pain and abandonment.  I used sand to give the background a rough-textured layer and an urbanized effect, and watercolour for the portrait to achieve a strong contrast with the acrylic background.”
