Artist: Rachel Rolfe
Title: Torn from memory
Reproduction of oil-based painting
Year 10 Project-Based Art
This is a painting of Mount Maunganui, which my family and I visit a lot! I decided to take inspiration from an artist called David Ambarzumjan, who painted a picture, like a city, and then did a huge paint stroke through the middle and superimposed a completely different environment into the broad stroke shape. I did a torn paper effect to show that it’s a little bit of my life that has always been there.
We will email you when your artwork is ready for collection (early in Term 4). Thank you.
