Recognition for Remy's HSC artwork
A CHILDHOOD love of drawing has led Kingscliff High School 2009 graduate Remy Cutcher to have her work featured in a national exhibition and purchased for a prestigious art collection.
The Cudgen resident had the artwork she created for her Higher School Certificate Kis Lanyi Aki Rajzol (little girl who likes to draw) selected for annual exhibition Art Express.
Miss Cutcher said she received a letter last week to say her artwork had been bought for the William Wilkins Memorial Art Collection.
“I was so excited to be nominated for Art Express, and then I was even more excited when I found out the piece had been purchased,” Ms Cutcher said.
“My artwork reflects childhood and my love for drawing. I see children as honest and imaginative; they are unfazed to whether they are drawing wrong, and I personally believe childhood is the best period in a person's life.
“When I look through the stack of drawings my parents kept, I see through them to my childhood.”
Kingscliff High School head teacher of creative arts Robyn Ludeke said Miss Cutcher was a motivated student.
“Her Year 12 art teacher Melanie Nicholls and I thought she was a very motivated student.
“It is an honour for her work to be selected,” Ms Ludeke said.
