Congratulations to Lola, a 2020 Mitchelton SHS graduate, on her acceptance into the National Art School in Sydney. Lola will commence her studies in a Bachelor of Fine Art, which is designed to impart the skills, knowledge and creative independence required to sustain a career as an artist.
Lola was one of a few successful applicants into this course, submitting a strong portfolio and personal statement. Lola describes her current art practice as being “primarily based in paintings and drawings about
paranormal figuration. For example: disfigured human forms and ghostly-like
characters (mostly in charcoal). In these works, I attempt to represent stages
of both inner and outer being. I am fascinated by apparitions, strange
miraculous circumstances and the subconscious.”
This is a great achievement and we wish Lola the very best on her exciting new journey.
