Principal's Art Award
Alyssa is a thoughtful and industrious student from Mount Barker Community College. Her family have lived in that area for many years and she was moved by the devastating bushfires that razed the land around her.
In her words:
"Despite being warned not to, locals lit up fires in this storm which lead to three days of about 27 massive bush fires raging… they left behind nothing but people and ashes… and the occasional burnt out tree stump."
This unique ‘stump’ idea was her symbolic response to this devastation. Through paperbark collected from the environment around her, wire mesh, string lights and spray-paint, she has created a visual representation of the pain and suffering that occurs to both people and nature. Alyssa’s work stands one-metre-tall and is a worthy winner of the SIDE Principal’s Art Award 2018.
