Haileybury’s VCE Art students have worked long and hard to complete their portfolios. They’ve used their creativity and hands-on artistic skills to create some memorable and striking pieces of work. Here we showcase a small selection of this year’s works and the inspiration behind them…
Product Design and Technology students, like Jobe Berends, compile a visual folio detailing their design thinking process as they create a new product for a client with a specific need or issue. Jobe’s clients wanted a comfortable, functional and eye-catching piece of furniture to use when relaxing on their patio. Using his computer-aided design skills and researching durable and environmentally sustainable products, Jobe created an unusual-looking and contemporary sun lounger using bamboo and marine plywood and a special lamination technique to ensure his design withstands the harsh Australian sun.
Studio Arts student Summer Chan decided to use her photographic talents to create a series of memorable images that she named GENSIS. Summer used a Canon EOS 60D with a 50mm lens, a tripod, stunning natural lighting and a longer shutter speed to create her artwork. This allowed her to highlight the finer details and textures in the images, such as the intricate lacework in the dresses, the skin tones of her subjects and the textures of the autumn foliage. The end result is a trio of photos with a cinematic and dreamlike appearance.
Visual Communication Design student Daniel Vereker created a contemporary bayside home flooded with natural light for a hypothetical client. Daniel let his imagination wander as he visualised each floor and feature of the luxurious, light-filled property. Using manual drawing methods and researching diverse home design trends, Daniel produced a sophisticated, high-quality 3D model of the home that brought his vision to life.
