Green Valley Young Artist opens 2016 IB Art Exhibition.
Year 13 art student, Lisa Peake opened the 2016 IB Art Exhibition at St. Andrews GreenValley with a fabulous range of artwork, enjoyed by those in attendance. Lisa’s concepts of growth, beauty and destruction have been communicated through every piece. The concept originated with her still-life paintings. Lisa celebrates her local environment with the inclusion of reclaimed materials and vegetation. In her dress installation and her tree sculpture made using wire, papier-mâché, glass, glue and sticks.
After the opening was over I was guided through Lisa’s work by the artist herself.
I just wanted to ask you about a couple of the pieces in the exhibition. Of all the works here, which piece was maybe the hardest to approach or you wish you could change?
“I would have to say probably the untitled torn still life piece, it was the first painting I did for this exhibit and I have evolved and improved as an artist in that time. Also I didn’t find it particularly inspiring to create.”
Which is your favorite piece?
“It would have to be the dress installation it was part of a bigger project where I created a short film in which I poured paint over myself while I was wearing the garment. This is also the piece I have selected to submit with my application to the Academy of Design in Eindhoven.“
