Crisis

This work was awarded the 2021 Foundation Student Art Award.

The artist created this work in the 2-D Design class, using craft paper and news printouts on Bristol board. She then went back in and drew marks in pen.

The work was inspired by the news coverage of the refugee crisis in Europe in 2016, when so many were trying to get in and there was so much backlash. The artist saw news reports and made printouts from the news including headshots, names of people, and the age of a child who passed away. The artist says that it was, “Grueling to be an outsider looking in. I wish I could have helped.”
