Spirited Arts 2021
St Michael's Catholic Grammar School
I chose the title [Different people] because at the end of the day, we are all people. Regardless of our race, gender, common beliefs, orientation etc, we're all people. We are all people with the same organs that do the same jobs, inhabiting the same earth in the same solar system. I crossed out the word different because although everyone has their differences, we are all human who are equal in theory regardless of differences. I say in theory simply because equal rights are not something exists in some countries within a perfect world, one they can only hope to achieve, everyone should be valued as equal.
In this place you can see that I have painted people from different ethnic groups and with different religious practises. There are seven paintings in total and although I'm aware that the diverse culture of the earth cannot be represented in paintings, it gives representation his main ethnic groups. They aren't divided into sections and are organised in the same folder. They are all wearing the same orange shirt to represent that even though we are not united in terms of ethnicity, we can be united by choice and in the shared passions.
This project helps significance to me because everyone is different, but we have so much more in common, as late Jo Cox stated in one of her famous quotes. Everyone has a heart, brain etc and we can all make mistakes. We all feel emotions people react in different ways. we all felt emotions and we all react in different ways. We've all had different upbringings and we all have different external features but that's what makes us human and that's what makes us so similar.
