This TVLP competition ran in September & October 2021.
Thanks to the support and assistance of our wonderful school art departments, we received 76 student entries from across all 8 of our schools.
Judging was a very challenging task due to the wide variety of different styles, subjects and techniques used. Because of this, Charlotte wanted to recognise a number of other entries which stood out. These are all listed below.
FIRST PLACE: Siyona Bhandari, Year 9, The Langley Academy.
This art work was chosen by our judge for a number of reasons. The concept fully met the competition brief and the composition was classic, while the choice of colours used made it unique and really stand out from the other entries. She said she could picture herself walking across the bridge.
SECOND PLACE: Scarlett Cardiff, Year 11, St Mary's School Ascot.
THIRD PLACE: Arabella Piggott, Year 9, Holyport College.
Our judge loved the strong message portrayed by this art work, which acts as a warning to us all. The concept is really relevant and has been well thought out and executed.
Arabella says "The child of 'Mother Earth' is 'forest bathing'. Whilst the child bathes, the trees are marked to be cut down - deforestation in the Amazon for example - and vines reach out to suffocate the child - a symbol of the pressure of the world we will inherit and therefore its problems. Although the bath is full of lush shrubbery and flowers, the consuming black darkness (symbolising carbon emissions and crude oil) slowly corrodes and consumes nature."
