JUROR'S COMMENTS

"MOZCOW is incredible.  This striking animal is rendered so precisely and honestly that he appears to be truly standing before the viewer whom he came over to greet in friendship and curiosity.  In fact he is so touchable and present that the viewer is tempted to caress the beautiful, soft fur on his head and is surprised upon discovering it cannot be.  It creates a lingering sense of regret as his gentle and sad manner beckons for love and attention and the removal of the dreadful rope that stole his freedom.  His endearing personality is expertly captured and transmitted, which demonstrates the artist's sensitive appreciation and insight.  Exquisite and astounding details, colour used to perfection, a sumptuous, dreamy background and a precious, strong subject agree and flourish in this absolutely excellent and breathtaking artwork." -- GALLERY RING
