Mollie Shaw

The winner of the senior category for Re:ACTIVATE Aspiring Artist’s 2020 Competition was Mollie Shaw from Rangi Ruru Girls’ School. Mollie’s entry is titled The Strong Woman, this work is designed as a mirage of coloured mosaic tiles creating the image of a woman. This work is of human scale. One part of the mosaic image is fragmented, signifying some of the woman’s life force as missing. However, from a specific perspective the fragmented image can be viewed as a whole, strong woman.
