(1st Place Tie – Drawing)
Title of Art Piece: Unseeing
Student/Artist’s Name: Pauline Corpus
School: Dimond High School
Artist Statement: I’ve been drawing a series of drawing based on phobias, and in this piece it is based on ommetaphobia, meaning fear of eyes. I’ve left the person without any eyes unable to see around their surrounding, due to the phobia. While in the background I used the forest as inspiration and drew in trees with eyes watching. What I wanted, while drawing this, is to get that creepy feeling where there is something watching your every movement even if you can not or do not want to see it.
