Juror’s Comments:

 

First prize: Renewal

A wonderfully suggestive work that is both carefully wrought and conceptually curious in all the right ways. We were compelled by the "thickness" of this piece, its ability to be evocative but not explanatory, tightly rendered but open-ended. It is an image that asks more questions than it answers, prompting us to return again and again with pleasure. 

 

Second prize: Red Triangle

While this is a work that appears simple enough at first glance, this take on geometric abstraction is a slyly smart one, balancing a rigorous sense of dynamism with the lightness of touch that watercolour necessitates. The result is an image that is both interesting rhythmically and accomplished technically, all while being a delight to look at.

 

Third prize: Peace in the Woods, Dundas Valley

This painting brings a playful, stripped-down approach to the much-tread tradition of the landscape, injecting it with formal energy and an interesting point of view. A freshly fun take on familiar territory.
