The Strong Woman 2019

The winner of the senior category of 2020’s Re:ACTIVATE Aspiring Artists Competition is 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.
