Alexandria Balde, 1st Place in High School 3D Art Category

Junior Alexandria Balde won 1st place in the High School 3D Art category for her series of 3D prints depicting faces at various stages of life. According to Alexandria’s artist statement, “I wanted my piece to showcase that alone, we all have fear. Fear for what we might face when we walk out into the streets and are perceived as a threat by our facial features. Or worse, when we are perceived as a mockable problem, and someone feels the need for violence and domination. We all will have that moment where we are frozen in fear and time, just like the faces I have encased in my blocks. And yet, together, you can see the progression of age and wisdom. We have strength in our families, and strength in our communities. And together we can make a difference.”

Christine Balde, 2nd Place in High School 3D Art Category

Christine Balde, 2nd Place in High School 3D Art Category

Sophomore Christine Balde won 2nd place the High School 3D Art category for her series of 3D prints that depict two hands in contrasting colors, one interesting another. Christine’s artist statement describes the meaning behind her sculpture, “I wanted the piece to be open to interpretation. To one person it could be two different peoples coming together to form something greater than themselves, or it could be one person reckoning with two distinct parts of their identity. I wanted to express this feeling in a way that was bright and tense at the same time.”

In addition to being talented artists, Alexandria and Christine have worked to uplift Asian American voices. The sisters are both board members of the Asian Student Alliance student group and members of the Chinese National Honors Society. For Asian American Native Hawaiian Pacific Islander (AANHPI) Heritage Month, they led morning announcements spotlighting Asian North Americans and created a slide presentation showcasing some BHHS Asian student art. Along with the other members of the Asian Student Alliance, they've donated $650 dollars to the Stop AAPI Hate Foundation raised mainly from their Multicultural Night fundraiser.
