Beautiful Work from Francesca Harrison

Congratulations to Francesca Harrison of Year 11 whose photograph "Homeless" was selected for the Mosman Youth Art Prize Exhibitions special online "Slow Look Art" feature.

The Art Prize exhibition features the diverse talents of young, aspiring and emerging artists and offers them the opportunity to exhibit their work in a public art gallery.

Francesca said she hopes her work will urge people to question their attitude to the “circular economy displacement, neglect and homelessness in our cities – and ownership, possession and dispossession of our urban environment”.

In the online special, volunteer guide Gill Lee highlighted the exceptional work of Francesca.

Gill said at first glance, Francesca’s work “promises a story”.

She said the photograph reminder her of the “plight of many older women in the city, who once enjoyed comfort and security, but through the sad downtown of their fortune, now struggle with homelessness.”
