The Art and Design Challenge Results

The Winners

First Place

'View thru window' by Charlotte Evers, Cirencester College

Judges' comments: "Very strong image leading the viewer into and through the picture and out beyond. Looks like a very clever concept of being able to change the view through the window. Very well thought out. Especially like the idea of the view through the window during this time of lockdown which is all many of us will see." (Tessa Campbell-Fraser)

"This is a beautifully constructed piece involving two highly skilled paintings, but also a very well thought-out concept. We were drawn in by this piece and its environmental message." (Val & Martin Adamson)

"I'd like to visit this house – looks wonderful." (Lady Bathurst)

Second Place

'Black Lives Matter' by Ella McClenahan, Chipping Campden School

Judges' comments: "Good portrait and cleverly thought out art work capturing the feeling of the world right now." (Tessa Campbell Fraser)

"What a wonderful triptych. Firstly, the portraits are beautifully drawn in a simple medium. We particularly love the American Indian. Although drawing on maps is not a new concept, here it has been used to specific effect to place the portraits in their lands and the controlling of the colour and pattern coming through is a great addition to the texture of the piece. It is a reaction to the moment, but it also shows history giving the piece more depth than if it was of Floyd alone. We assume it has been created in a relatively short time for this competition. A stand-out piece. Congratulations!" (Val & Martin Adamson)

"I think that this student should strongly consider an Art Foundation course as a stepping stone after leaving school. In many ways knowing that this is an option could be the most important thing that I could advise." (George Butler)

Joint Third Place

'Biotica' by Ben Waldron, Cirencester College

"Exciting and innovative and thoroughly researched." (Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen)

"Beautiful organic building that I would love to see made." Well done! (Tessa Campbell Fraser)

"This is simply amazing. The thought – the design – the flow of the building – I hope this is one day built. It’s astonishingly elegant and brings nature and design hand-in-hand. And, extremely well presented." (Lady Bathurst)

'Surreal Painting' by Caitlin Turner, Burford School

"Excellently and elegantly delivered with a wonderful appreciation for composition." (Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen)

"Very alluring for the world thought our composition. Gives you plenty to look at. Well done!" (Tessa Campbell Fraser)

"Very thought provoking and stunning work." (Lady Bathurst)

"I think that this student should strongly consider an Art Foundation course as a stepping stone after leaving school. In many ways knowing that this is an option could be the most important thing that I could advise." (George Butler)
