Leif’s Redemp­tion at the gallery

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

A TAL­ENTED Ur­sula Frayne Catholic Col­lege grad­u­ate has been picked to hang his art­work in the com­pet­i­tive Per­spec­tives Art Ex­hi­bi­tion.

As a for­mer stu­dent with the school’s Year 12 visual art pro­gram, Leif Shorter’s work Re­volv­ing Door was se­lected to hang in the Art Gallery of WA for the ex­hi­bi­tion.

His pen­cil and paint draw­ing was a life­like de­pic­tion of Shaw­shank Redemp­tion’s Brooks.

Leif said the theme of his art­work ad­dressed the idea that Brooks was look­ing back at his past self, and ex­am­in­ing the man who was led to prison.

Themes of the work also sug­gested prison was de­signed for re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion but could cause con­fu­sion for a per­son try­ing to re-en­ter so­ci­ety. Leif is study­ing psy­chol­ogy at UWA. char­ac­ter
