I like dance and graphic design and illustration. Daniel Ferguson, Year 12 I prefer more abstract and contemporary art. Treasure Aratema, Year 12 I like video art and contemporary film. Will Roberts, Year 12 I like street art, stencil and postups, especially satirical works. Isabella Di Toro, Year 12 Exit Art Chatterbox with Darwin High School: What types of art do you find most appealing? I like pop art and appropriation. Stevie Kyriacou, Year 12 Museum exhibition for best student art A display of art by former Year 12 students is now showing at the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory. The annual Exit Art is showcasing the exceptional works of a select number of last years graduates from Territory government and non-government schools and this year demonstrates the technical competency and creativity of 45 visual artists from 14 schools in Darwin, regional and remote communities. The works include pencil on watercolour paper, digi tal photography, mixed media, synthetic polymer paint on canvas, video, and linocut on paper. Through manipulation of media, the exhibition captures the passions and personalities of the artists and generates thought-provoking perspectives in subtle and stark tones. Exit Art is a collaboration between the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory and the Department of Education. The 23rd Exit Art can be seen in the Flinders Gallery until 4 June 2017. Jan Danielle Dominigo with his work, Redemption Picture: IVAN RACHMAN Jan focuses on the art of Redemption THE arresting digital photographs Unlabelled and Redemption self-portraits by Jan Danielle Domingo document his experiences of homosexuality during his childhood. Unlabelled details his feelings and masked identity before revealing his sexuality to his mother, and Redemption is a celebration of his freedom from the oppressive personal prejudice he suffered before coming out. The Casuarina Senior College graduate said Redemption demonstrates how my childhood would have looked if I wasnt locked in a jail of self-hate. But Unlabelled illustrates my distinctiveness expressed through music and my ability to visualise it with make-up; akin to synaesthesia in art the excitement of one sense leading to the experience of another. The freelance make-up artist aspires to be a fashion model, incorporating art and fashion into storytelling. Fashion relies heavily on storytelling, which is what I am doing right now with my artworks, but incorporating fashion into my art will elevate it to another level, he said. Before Exit Art, my brain was fogged with fear that my aspirations to be an artist wouldnt come true. But once Exit Art opened, my world turned. It helped me launch my career, and continually build connections with other artists. Exit Art has opened lots of doors for me, and I am very grateful. Jan Danielle Domingo is ambitious to forge avenues as a visual and make-up artist in diverse mediums, including fashion shows, television, films and magazines, collaborating with creative teams to expand his art domestically, and overseas. Caitlin Hawthorne with her art piece Rosa Alba Picture: IVAN RACHMAN Named and framed CAITLIN Rose Hawthorne created Rosa Alba as a mixed media work in watercolour and acrylic paint, and multiple pens and pencils. The Sturts Desert Rose and hawthorn branches are incorporated in the exhibit to symbolically reflect her middle name and surname. The former Good Shepherd Lutheran College student said she wanted to explore names in general and how their meanings can have a social and cultural significance. I was then led to explore my own name and how exactly it relates to me personally and culturally, she said. And the inclusion of a barn owl testifies to Ms Hawthornes abiding interest in owls. My grandma had a huge collection of owls, so they are something Im familiar with, and can relate to, she said. I chose to look at how people relate human characteristics to animals, and how it greatly influences our cultures. She described Rosa Alba as representative of the Territorys duality of brashness and sensitivity. Hawthorns have thorns, but bloom with delicate white flowers and red berries; the desert rose is extremely durable, but is soft and gentle; the owl has sharp claws, but also soft feathers, she said. The art hobbyist, who has been drawing for most of her life said she is unlikely to pursue a career in art, content instead to watch and cheer from the sidelines.
