Rototuna High School exhibition - Amy Hou
This magnificent pencil drawing, The Journey Home, by 15 years old Amy Hou has entranced gallery visitors for the length of the exhibition. This is her narrative:
"The Journey Home tells the story of a man living his ordinary life waiting for a bus home in a village, but instead he somehow made his way onto the internet. He found a way to live on forever by living out his ordinary life. Through this piece, I hope to allow the audience to hear the story of this man. This man has been labelled “grumpy old man” or “wrinkly old man” by the internet without anyone knowing who he actually is".
Sold. Quite right too.
