Name: Thu Dam
School: Cobham Hall
Year: Year 12
Inspiration: My name is Anh Thu Dam. I am 17 years old and I am a girl from Vietnam. I am studying at Cobham Hall, which is an international boarding school in Kent. This is my first year studying in England as well as having Art as one of the main subjects at school. My passion is to create something new and fresh whenever I do art. I have a lot of fun when I paint. Just with some basic colours, I want to produce exciting paintings. Moreover, I try to make objects in my painting look as lively as possible. Therefore, I always try my best to express a three-dimensional effect in everything I do.
Description: The tornado breaks the pencil into two pieces. One piece is shattered. We can see the top and the end of the pencil. The second piece of the pencil is going through the pen. I actually measured the location where the pencil goes out of the pen. If you break the relief into smaller pieces, you can see from the bottom of the pen that the pencil going through it is one piece. The pencil is also crashed with the tippex. Moreover, there are white circles around the place where the pencil comes into the pen. It is because the pencil is eating the pen. At first, the pedestal was strong enough for the relief. But after I placed the top of the blue pen, which represents a building, the tippex couldn’t bear the heaviness and collapsed. Therefore, I had to measure the space underneath the relief to add one more pedestal. The hardest part for me was to not let viewers see the extra pedestal. Moreover, if you look from the top, you can see every detail, which are covered by the building, painted on the pointy top of the building. The raw material was paper.
