Lan Fang was presented with an Award of Excellence at the recent Independent Education Union (IEU) Awards for Excellence in Art and Design. Lan was awarded the top prize in the Years 9 and 10 division for an artwork that she created titled, ‘The Garden that give me wings’. The delightful Surrealist inspired scene explored the concept, ‘In the Garden’. The judge, Julie Seidel, commented, ‘The Garden that gives me wings’ is a sensitive interpretation of escape, flight and fantasy. The garden of imagination and a yearning for space and place is beautifully captured in the surfaces and whimsical composition. This young artist has developed a personal and confident aesthetic.’
Many thanks go to Lan and her family for attending the evening. The work will be exhibited as a part of the Ormiston College Art Show, opening 4 November at 6.30pm.
