(1st Place – Painting)
Title of Art Piece: Seven Devils
Student/Artist’s Name: Sara Karl
School: Lathrop High School
Artist Statement: This piece is concentrated on opposites. The composition is informally balanced and the focus was garment design. I wanted the feeling of opposites to be evoked by the characteristics of the women. The woman in the formal dress seems very elegant, yet she is holding a skull. The woman with the grunge clothing seems to be casual and perhaps a punk, yet she is admiring the flowers grow. I wanted this piece to show that you cannot know a person by their looks. There is always more to people than their appearance.
