Caitlin recognised in Young Archies - 31 July 2017

Year 9 student, Caitlin Kearney has received an honourable mention in the 2017 Young Archie Competition (13 to 15 year-old category).

 

Running in conjunction with the prestigious annual Archibald Prize, the Young Archies provide an opportunity for young artists (aged 5-18 years) to submit a portrait of someone special in their lives.

 

Caitlin's close bond with her younger sister, Grace, who is in Year 8 at Lourdes Hill, was her inspiration behind her pencil and watercolour creation.

 

In her justification, Caitlin writes:

 

I have drawn my little sister Gracie. With such a small age gap between us, we have always shared everything, which was the subject of many arguments when we were younger. But as we have grown up it has led to a bond that is incredibly special. Gracie is charismatic in a way that you can’t help but like her and she says things that are so completely unfiltered, sporadic and wild, you can’t help but laugh. Her confidence to be extravagant and comfortable with herself has always inspired me. I’ve tried to capture this – her comicality, spontaneity and charm.

 

Having received an honourable mention, Caitlin's artwork will be displayed at Sydney's SH Ervin Gallery.
