BOSSLEY Park High School graduate Stephanie Zandarin will be among 30 students who will have their artwork exhibited at the Australian Catholic University's McGlade Art Gallery today.

The exhibition, which runs until May 24, is part of the 31st ARTEXPRESS, which displays the best artworks by students across NSW as part of last year's HSC.

While over 300 students' works were nominated for this year's exhibition, only 30 were chosen for the McGlade Art Gallery exhibition.

Miss Zandarin described her painting Fertile Food as looking simultaneously at life and death.

"As a painter I became increasingly interested in the notions of juxtaposition, chaos and layering," she said.

"I over-layered and juxtaposed the images of rabbits that scuttle and scurry frantically and run from the jaws which seek to devour them.

"The circle of life, the food chain: one day we eat, another we are eaten."

Miss Zandarin's work will move to the Margaret Whitlam Galleries at the University of Western Sydney in August.

The ARTEXPRESS exhibition will comprise ceramics, drawings, graphic designs, paintings, photomedia, printmaking, sculptures, textiles and works made with fibre.
