An amazing 3D artwork has earned Beaconhills College student Brianna Burns selection in the prestigious Top Arts exhibition, part of the VCE Season of Excellence.

Brianna completed her artwork, titled Transparency, in her Studio Arts subject last year.

Choosing the theme of individuality, Brianna decided to explore the expression of one’s self through portraiture.

Her artwork is done in red and blue pencil and depicts a drag queen, with and without makeup.

“I drew the male version, Dan, in blue pencil, and the female version, Nancy Buoy, in red, both overlaying one another,” Brianna explained. “When viewed through traditional 3D glasses, and by closing one eye, one of the portraits disappears and the opposite will occur when closing the other eye.”

The talented young artist has already won a number of art awards and is this year’s Visual Arts Captain in Year 12 at Beaconhills.

Her work will be displayed in the Top Arts exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria 22 March to 14 July 2019.

The VCE Season of Excellence is a five-month annual arts festival showcasing outstanding senior secondary work from Victorian schools.
