IN­SPIR­ING ARTISTS HER­ITAGE AT HEART OF CHO­SEN PAINT­INGS

Comment News (Gosnells) - - News -

TWO South­ern River Col­lege stu­dents have had their art­work se­lected for dis­play in a pres­ti­gious ex­hi­bi­tion.

Tanya Parfitt and Richard Kick­ett’s art­work will be dis­played at the Young Orig­i­nals ex­hi­bi­tion, hosted by the WA Sec­ondary School Ex­ec­u­tive As­so­ci­a­tion.

The pair’s paint­ings, Con­nec­tion with Na­ture and The Snake re­spec­tively, drew on their Abo­rig­i­nal her­itage.

Parfitt’s piece aimed to show the peace­ful­ness of na­ture through a va­ri­ety of tones of blue and white and re­flected her fam­ily’s love of na­ture, while Kick­ett’s work was painted in a tra­di­tional style.

Art teacher Marc Bikem said he was de­lighted to see his two stu­dents’ work nom­i­nated.

“I’m so happy for them; I can see they’re learn­ing and now they’re ac­tu­ally more con­fi­dent in their art,” he said.

Mr Bikem said he hoped their achieve­ments would in­spire their class­mates.

“I hope they think: ‘If one of my friends can achieve, why not me?’,” he said. Above: Tanya Parfitt with her paint­ing
