Untitled Photograph, inkjet print Using photography I found that the body could be presented with an array of different textures and overlays. The natural curves and shadows that accentuated the form and structure gave it such an extraordinary focal point and presented so beautifully, creating intricate and captivating photographs.

Death of Identity Acrylic paint on canvas Free West Papua. Genocide reigns free in a country stricken with loss and oppression. I chose to blend the colours of the West Papuan flag in order to showcase grief and loss, not only of the subjects figure, but in the facial expressions, expressions which evoke pain and suffering. This work for me is a representation of identity at its weakest. A reminder about those suffering. Freedom to all. St Joseph's College Ferntree Gully

In my folio I explored the aspects of freedom. When I think of what it means to be free I picture large open fields, mountain ranges and skies, filled with birds flying free unbound by the shackles of the grounds below. My artworks demonstrate this, symbolising the break away from oppression and entrapment and to show what it feels like to be truly free as a bird. St Joseph's College Ferntree Gully

Come Sit Oils on canvas Come sit was my exploration in sitting, being peaceful and reflecting. Looking at where we sit and why, and often why we don't. I looked at the invitation to not do life alone, but to sit apart from the world for a while. I also created an installation that provides a physical, devotional place of rest.

Split Personality Photograph on reflective paper My theme this year was 'Identity'. I have focused on self-discovery throughout youth and the process of gaining confidence to express one's personality truthfully.

Perception vs Perspective Synthetic polymer paint on paper Through my theme of identity I explored the various ways society sees people and how that can affect our own personal identity. I began to discover different paint mediums to express my ideas. I did so by layering different materials on top of one another, just as our identities are complex and multi-layered.

Edgar Allen Poe Graphic novel, print on gloss paper, bound with leather My art work follows a theme of vulnerability and morbidity demonstrated through surreal motifs. I love to juxtapose elements of romanticism in my works to find beauty in what is typically unattractive. Sherbrooke Community School

Disquiet Digital moving image My digital moving image is composed of 454 separate digitally drawn frames. It depicts the build-up of emotion and fear, and the implications of not addressing an issue. This artwork shows the transition between the stages of increasing emotion through the movement and alteration of shadows and shapes. The rising distress of the figure represents the confusion and anguish felt when you let fear control you. Monbulk College

Untitled #1 Photograph Throughout the year, I explored ideas and concepts related to my theme of 'Nature's Puzzle', which refers to the way different aspects of nature relate in unique ways. Every object, item and creature that nature encompasses has an individual identity. I explored the way these entities come to shape our natural world and the way we perceive it. Monbulk College

Life's Light Lamp Through my artwork I have explored the theme of 'Life's Influences'. I really enjoyed capturing the small moments that create individuals and mould personalities. Throughout this journey, I came to the realisation that it isn't just one thing that influences us, but many different things that are accumulated together. Monbulk College
