Love powered the piece created by Charliese, the winner of the Young Archies, in the 16-18 year category.
The Young Archie is the national portrait prize for children and teens held alongside the Archibald Prize at the Art Gallery of NSW.
The Year 11 Virtual School Victoria student painted her mother after her recovery from bowel cancer.
Charliese dedicated the portrait, called Momasito, to her mum.
‘She is the strongest person I have ever met, and whenever I feel like I have no one else to turn to, or I feel lost, I know I can go to her. She has a heart of gold and stays strong even through the toughest of times, and I wanted to portray that here – her vulnerable and caring presence side by side with her iron will,’ said Charliese.
Charliese recently joined the VSV community.
A huge congratulations to Charliese on this incredible achievement!
