ASSOCIATE CURATOR PROJECTS
Year 12 Perspectives is your yearly taste of art by some of the best, brightest and most talented graduating high school artists in the State. An annual barometer of what our youth are thinking and feeling, it is also a rich celebration of the role the arts play in the development of individual identities.
The Year 12 Perspectives exhibition is celebrating its 24th year. Once again this popular annual event provides the platform to showcase selected works from students graduating from Year 12 Visual Arts.
58 works by 57 students from across Western Australia were selected by this year’s judging panel comprised of: Lisa Bowden, Principal Consultant Visual Arts, School Curriculum and Standards Authority; Abdul-Rahman Abdullah, Artist; and Dunja Rmandic, Associate Curator Projects, AGWA.
Works span a variety of subject matter and media, ranging from painting and drawing to sculpture, digital moving image, photography and textiles.
This exhibition represents a great opportunity to glimpse the world through the eyes of our young people.

Darcey Schouten is this year's winner of the Packers Prize for her work Timber.
"Driftwood is a natural element that is the result from both the trees and the river. Trees symbolise strength, life and wisdom. The river symbolises power, purity and healing; therefore together it creates a powerful expression of nature's energy. Heather Jansch's driftwood sculpture of a horse that I visited whilst living in the UK influenced me greatly. My work is also influenced by my own horse and the power I feel when out riding, when I am going flat-out against the wind. It is far more exhilarating and satisfying than any video game could be."
