Spirituality in Art Award recipient announced - 21 October 2014

On Thursday 9 October, Delphine Shawcross (Year 12) was announced as the recipient of the College’s 2014 Spirituality in Art Award for her work, Aeternus.

The Spirituality in Art Award is an annual acquisitive prize of $250 awarded, in the opinion of the judges, for the best religious or spiritual art work submitted. Entry is open to all Lourdes Hill College students for artworks in any media and in any style that have been created in the year of the Award. The selected artwork is acquired and displayed by the College.

Artworks submitted may address any suitable religious or spiritual subject, theme or idea. Students are thus challenged to consider religion and spirituality in significant ways across personal, sacred, social, political and contemporary contexts.

Aeternus captures the transience of life allowing the viewer to consider the themes of death and rebirth that allow the continuation of the life cycle, with no beginning or end. Through her simplistic, yet beautiful cyanotypes, Delphine has captured the intricate details of a dead plant and has transformed our view of death by acknowledging the inner beauty of each life form.

Highly commended entries were received from Kate Hudson, Monique Pousson, Sophi Hohn, Grace Kim, Boni Alexander, Olivia McQueen, Michaela Brady and Tiarnie Seden.
