​Recently our Year 11 Visual Arts students had the opportunity to attend an excursion to the Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) at Southbank. Students were able to browse at leisure at the various exhibitions on display, later finding time to draw on their inspiration to reflect on the pieces and artists they saw. Year 11 Visual Art student, Rachel Yee provides her reflection of this experience.

The Year 11 students had the opportunity to go on an excursion to GOMA. After meeting outside the gallery for roll marking, students were to make observations on the built environment that surrounds the GOMA building, and then express themselves through representational or abstract drawings. This lasted from 9am to 10am, before the opening of the gallery. Students found this a relaxing time for themselves before heading into the gallery to explore the many different types of artists and their work. I found most of the work quite interesting, and seeing the various methods and types of works has sparked ideas for my own artwork in the future. I found interest in the artwork by Hou I-Ting, where they used seaweed and rice to create a story. A lot of students during the day were commenting on who they drew inspiration from and the possibilities of their own works moving forward.

After exploring artworks from GOMA, we all had a look around the Queensland Art Gallery,  learning various strategies on postmodernism, and using these to analyse artwork that were displayed in the gallery. As part of the excursion we were required to take photos and write down ideas, along with sketches for the ideas we had from looking at the various artists and their works.

Overall, it was a great experience and a fabulous opportunity for us all to gain inspiration and talk about the many different works.
