Yasmin Shah Art School Offers Posted: 3/05/19
Yasmin Shah, 13 Piccadilly has been accepted into the highly prestigious Central Saint Martins and Royal Drawing School to complete her Foundation Art and Design Course. This is a fantastic tribute to her hard work and ability. After careful consideration, she has accepted her place at Central Saint Martins.
You can see one of her paintings below and a description of what this piece represents.
My oil painting focuses on the concept/theory of ecofeminism, which explores how women and nature are seen as one, and therefore are able to be exploited by man in the same way. The painting explores the quote by Sarah Milner-Barry, that “The idea that women and nature are linked inherently is tacit acceptance to their mutual exploitation”. The bruises and stretch marks on the throat and neck show how air pollution affect women, in particular pregnant women, in the same way that nature is also affected by air pollution. It is thought that the men of the 18th century were the brains behind the industrial revolution, thus creating this pollution and corruption as a result of both women and nature. This is just one of the ways that ecofeminists view women and nature as inherently connected.
We are very proud of Yasmin and her skill that has been developed over seven years, by her talented and committed Art teachers
