Things aren't always how they appear on the surface. The life that is so familiar doesn't stay the same; the universe may fragment or juggle situations and relationships until they are unrecognizable. The same can be said for paintings that morph and grow in ways you never expected when you began. But I think this one had a more interesting destination than what I intended.

Judge's Comment: "So much lies beneath the surface in this stand-out piece demonstrating confident drawing and thoughtful design. The exciting composition succeeds in its balanced arrangement of contrasting yet congruent elements: both vibrant and muted geometric forms surround and support dominant, organic foreground shapes, leaving us with a powerful sense of the figure's presence and a convincing experience."
