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."
