It’s all in the name for Darcy Young who last week had his portrait artwork featured in one of the country’s most prominent art exhibitions.
The annual Young Archie competition invited budding artists to submit a portrait in association with The Archibald Prize and Darcy was lucky enough to represent TSS with his inspiring portrait of someone he admires and looks up to.
And while Mitch Cairns won the $100,000 prize, Darcy did himself proud and had his artwork featured in the ‘Young Archie’: a portrait show held in conjunction with the Archibald, at the New South Wales Art Gallery.
Darcy Young wrote the following about the significance of his portrait:
Title of work: My teacher Mr Hoppe.6
Mr Hoppe has been teaching me in the 5/6 honours class for two years and I have learnt some very important things that include not just academics. Mr Hoppe has taught us how to work hard, how to be resilient, and also demonstrates a different innovative approach to teaching us. He never fails to make us laugh and doesn’t mind a joke or two.
Mr Hoppe is an excellent teacher.
Well done Darcy, the TSS community is very proud of you.
