The College congratulates the Executive President, Remin (Remy) Reji Mathew, in winning second place in both the painting and other sections of the 2020 Inter-college Art Competition today.
Remy's painting, entitled Hope, is an amazing piece of art, and something he drew from memory of a scene he remembers seeing in the Netherlands as a young boy.
Remy writes as follows about the painting:
''I have put a lot of love and effort into this piece, adding lots of texture and colour, light, and shadow. I have used my pallet, knives, brush and scratching objects as well. I did this artwork during quarantine, hence the name 'Hope'.
Hoping for a better tomorrow, the world waited and created new ways of living and completely healed the earth, just as they were healed. The realisation came that I am here to give colour to the world even though life can be gloomy sometimes. I wanted to create a big bright colourful painting of a landscape full of happiness and vibrant energy, which will be my home one day."
Your painting certainly brightens the world, Remy. Congratulations on being placed second in the competition!
