Year 8 ART Collaboration

During the Folkestone Triennial, Year 8 students had the pleasure of meeting artist Soraia Andersen.

Pictured below is one of Soraia's pieces from ‘I am patchwork’. This is a body of work encompassing a series of painting collages exploring the idea of identity which is rooted in the artist's own life-long attempt at finding a place of belonging and acceptance of who, what and why she is.

Directly influenced by the creative process of Matisse’s cut-outs, Soraia cuts, paints and glues mixed media onto canvas. Using mirrored pieces of paper throughout the work - it is the artist’s intention that the viewer will catch glimpses of themselves in the collages, thus transported themselves inside the canvas.

Year 8 classes worked on producing their own piece of work inspired by the artist. This work is now part of their own Patchwork series and on display as a wonderful entrance of colour and life as you walk into the Art department.
