"Perspective" from The West Collection

This display, provided by the West Collection, centers around the overarching theme of distortion and unique perspective. Each piece was chosen by the senior Studio Art III class. These images show how the perception of our reality can deviate from what is really there. Our pieces reflect how different states of mind shape and create different realities. They also show how we actively distort the events around us to fit the narrative we want to see. Even if that distortion results in a “reality” that is out of this world. We want to challenge the audience’s mind to see something that is not always visible to the human eye.

The Shipley School is a private, coeducational day school for pre-kindergarten through 12th grade students, located in Bryn Mawr, PA. Through our commitment to educational excellence, we develop within each student a love of learning and a desire for compassionate participation in the world.
