One of my pieces from my final exam project, on ‘Freedom and Limitations’ of food consumption, has been shortlisted for the ‘Royal Academy A-level Summer Exhibition Online’.
On May 11th, I submitted three photographs to the Royal Academy for consideration. One of my photographs, titled ‘Unknown Source’, was successfully chosen and published on their Flickr page (where you can read about the piece).
The exhibition is from the 12th June to the 19th August 2018, that celebrates young artists work across all mediums.
I feel very privileged to have had my work chosen, from 2100 submissions, to be a part of such a prestigious art exhibition for young artists aged 16-18.
This is such an exciting achievement as an artist and will be something that I hold onto forever. As a result of this, I will have an article published in the SENINE Magazine.
When I submitted my work, I could not have imagined where this achievement would have taken me. I am honoured to have had such amazing support from the whole Art Department, whose encouragement gave me the confidence to enter the exhibition.
Next year I will be doing a foundation year in Art and Design at the University for the Creative Arts in Canterbury; in which I hope to continue to grow as an artist and further my questioning of other ‘Unknown Sources’ of control within our society.
