Escape from Boredom showcases the work of 18-year-old, Rebecca Woodroffe. She is a frequent visitor to the Women’s and Children’s Hospital and created many of the works in this exhibition while in the Hospital.

“Art is something I try to do when I spend a long time in hospital as an escape from the boredom. It also gives me a hobby, I much prefer saying “I do art” than “I go to hospital.” Art is something that brings me joy.”

Rosie, the Play Therapist in Adolescent Ward, identified Rebecca’s talent as an artist and encouraged her to apply for a solo exhibition in the Hospital. Rebecca is excited to share her art with the Hospital community:

“I don’t want it to be trapped in my computer or sketchbooks. I hope the people who see my art and enjoy it.”

The main influence on Rebecca’s art is anime, video games, and other artists on Instagram and YouTube. She is inspired by the random ideas that come to her when she can’t sleep. Her work combines digital and more traditional drawing techniques. While Rebecca sometimes creates work by drawing on paper alone, she mostly starts by sketching the image on paper, before photographing them and finishing the line work, colouring and shading digitally.

In celebration of Rebecca’s talents, Escape from Boredom was timed to coincide with SA Youth Week. SA Youth Week showcases young peoples’ talents, contributions and achievements; promotes a positive image of young people; acknowledges the common interests of young people, as well as their diverse backgrounds and circumstances; and enables young people to express their ideas.
