Shadows play on blank canvas

AN INTERACTIVE display of art and music at the Warwick Library on Saturday by talented Warwick High School student Kaitlyn Lee proved popular for people of all ages.

Miss Lee is a Year 12 student who was inspired to do something completely different for her senior art project.

She said the students were asked to create something exploring humanity and relate it to their individual passion.

"As I have always loved music, I knew I had to incorporate that into my project," she said.

"I also wanted to create something that people could get involved with."

Miss Lee painted her masterpiece Music Is All Around Us of musicians in contrasting black and white, leaving a blank white canvass in the middle.

The reason for this was to give people the opportunity to choose one of the many musical instruments on offer and stand behind the canvas and have their shadow projected onto the blank canvas to make it look like they were part of the band.

The end result was stunning and Miss Lee said she was glad to see people have so much fun with it.

"I am so proud of how it turned out, especially as I was on crutches due to an ankle reconstruction for the most part of the 10 weeks we had to work on it," she said.

The talented student hopes she has encouraged more people to be passionate about music.

While her career choice is in the science field, Miss Lee loves having fun with art and playing the guitar and flute as a hobby whenever she can.
