“Student Voice”

These images are from the 2012 level 2 external portfolios. The students are arranging and reinterpreting images of themselves in a school based environment. They were primarily concerned with developing related sets of ideas through the symbolic positioning and placement of figures in a recognizable space. Each student has responded to source material in a different way, using a variety of contemporary artist models to help them with their expression. Each painting is a personal interpretation of reality, reflecting the intentions of the New Zealand Curriculum in this the development of the “student voice”. All artworks are done with water based paint on paper
