art express

art express is an exhibition held at the nsw art gallery every year. a collection of major works done by nsw year 12 students completed as part of their final year school assessment. the most outstanding are in the gallery in sydney as well as other parts of the city and regional areas. 
i visited the gallery last weekend and want to share with you some of my favourite works..i'm always inspired by the talent and fresh ideas of young artists.i highly recommend a visit here of you are in sydney.

the natural selection  artist: Isabella Rich    

the natural selection aims to question the value of industrialisation and its effects on nature and humanity

materials: found objects coral, seashells, driftwood in a series of shadow boxes made from recycled timber...each little car is made from a bottle top..

the good wifes guide  artist: Laura Wingrove   a very funny set of photography and film based on a set of rules in Housekeeping Monthly 1955. rules placed on women by women! we've come a long way...but have we really??

illusion  artist: Kate Devlin  a set of photography and collage which explores individuals search for purpose.
