In celebration of the wonderful achievement of Haileybury’s Studio Arts students, we are proud to present a selection of their work for their families, friends and the public—including Industry members at the Victorian Artist Society.

The artworks created by the VCE students range in style and ideas, bringing to light key themes for young contemporary artists today. Themes and concepts explored include relationships, the impermanence of life, gender and the impact of technology, and more. Students explored and experimented with materials and techniques in their studio process, as outlined in their exploration proposal. The art forms utilised to convey these ideas include painting, drawing, photography, textiles, digital and sculpture.

'Sensored' is a painting depicting my relationship with technology and the digital world, and how it encourages the creation of online personas on platforms such as social media. Especially in lockdown, I found myself having excessive screen time; and it wasn't until I addressed how this caused a disconnect between my family and friends could I reduce my time spent in the digital world and increase my time in the real world; which is what I attempted to portray in my painting. This painting is both critical and empathetic, as it represents humanity as immersed in the wonders of digital technology. However, it also communicates the danger of becoming too attached to the digital world.
