Underwater, Octavia Hands
School: Redmaids High School
Year group: 13
Medium: Oil on Canvas, PVA and Melted Plastic
At the beginning of year 12 we were given the brief 'Outside, inside and in between', and so in my artwork I've been exploring relationships between people, emotions and our surroundings, whilst using different materials to create texture and colour. The plastic pieces in the water reflect the man-made impacts on our natural environments, which are becoming harder to ignore.
