Recent Christ Church Grammar School graduate Oliver Pemberton (’21) has been featured in the Art Gallery of Western Australia’s (AGWA) Pulse 2022 showcase.

Oliver’s artwork is titled ‘Disoriented’ and was created using digital print on perspex, acrylic and epoxy resin.

In his artist statement Oliver said, “In this work I explore the emotional landscape connected to surfing.”

“The exhilaration of catching a wave contrasts with the feeling of vulnerability towards the power of the ocean and its inhabitants.”

“I wanted to convey a sense of disorientation, but also relaxation.”

The year-round AGWA Pulse program features artwork from WA artists aged 15 to 21, celebrating the ‘pulse’ of young people who will influence, impact and shape the world we live in.

This year’s exhibition features 49 works by 2021 Year 12 Visual Arts graduates from 32 schools across WA.
