Coasting : Issue 10 April 2010
15 www.coastingtoday.com.au Artist: Mel Compton, 15 School: Henry Kendall High School. Artwork title: Child Play. Type of work: Mixed media. THIS piece was inspired by the artist's grandfather who went to war. The straightforward depiction of a ghost child, crucifixes, anti-bombing motif and poppy combine to create an unambiguous message. "The message is that war is no good," Mel said. The dark images are juxtaposed against a backdrop of hundreds and thousands.
