The creative brilliance of Beaconhills College’s VCE art and technology students is on display this week at two annual exhibitions.
‘CRE8’ kicked off at Berwick Campus on Tuesday 15 October and the VCE Visual Arts and Technology Exhibition opened on Wednesday 16 October at the Pakenham campus.
Berwick campus student Tara Whitchurch created a striking winged sculpture titled ‘Between Heaven and Hell’, portraying the battle between light and dark.
With a steel platform as a base, she crafted each of the larger feathers from a blind material and layered them onto a wooden frame.
It was then detailed with real feathers and feather boas to give the wings some texture.
She explained that the artwork was a visual representation of religious beings such as angels and demons.
“Angels are perceived as good, pure and light, which justifies the white wing, whereas demons represent evil, corruption and darkness which is contrasted through the black wing,” Tara said.
“I connected the angel wing with positive perceptions of religious movements, and the demon wing with perceptions of negative religious movements.”
The community is welcome to view the art and technology exhibitions at the two campuses until Friday 18 October.
