Juror's Statement:

LJXK; "Lizard Man"

"Creative use of the medium for a standard form as well as the decorative application. High level of skill in use of surface texture." Wickford Art Association All media Show, April 10- May 3 2015 1st Place Juror: Dennis Sirrine Juror's Statement: LJXK; "Giraffe" "This piece popped off the canvas and put a big smile on my face. Drawn closer to the surface one discovers the artist's unique application of paint which gives it a 3-dimensionality, begging to reveal the painting process, popping against a flatter yet still painterly blue sky."
