Spirituality in Art Award Recipients - 23 October 2015

The Spirituality in Art Award is an annual acquisitive prize of $250 for the best religious or spiritual art work submitted in 2015. The artworks could be in any media and in any style. Through creating these works, students were challenged to consider religion and spirituality in significant ways across personal, sacred, social, political and contemporary contexts.


There were a number of sophisticated entries in 2015, highlighting the depth of talent at Lourdes Hill College. It was wonderful to see entries from Year 7 students this year.


The winning entry was Year 12 student, Cheyenne Nicholson’s work, ‘Translucent Travel’. Cheyenne’s work represents not only hers, but all of our ‘spiritual walks’ in search of meaning in our ‘everyday life.’ Cheyenne chose to transform digital photographed images of her recent physical journey in USA.  Through a variety of artistic techniques, Cheyenne has layered the photographed images one upon each other to create the ultimate journey within one new image. Metaphorically speaking, Cheyenne’s transformed physical journey now represents the depth of our inner spiritual walk in the pursuit of purpose, meaning and identity.


The winning and Highly Commended works were announced at the Visual Art Exhibition on Thursday 8 October by Mr Steve Jorgensen and guest artist, Mr Glenn Skien.


Receiving Highly Commended was Bonita Alexander (Yr 12), Jessie Ault (Yr 12), Michaela Brady (Yr 11), Ruby Cevallos (Yr 10), Caitlin Kearney (Yr 7), Julia Martinelli (Yr 7), Cheyenne Nicholson (Yr 12), Emily Star (Yr 12), Keely Strauss (Yr 7), and Denver-Jeanne Ter Beke (Yr 11).


A special thank you must go to senior Visual Art teachers, Ms Kylie Dell and Ms Trish Linehan, for their constant support of the students and for nurturing their artistic growth.
