COLOURFUL
January 2022


BEST IN SHOW
"URBAN INNOCENCE V"
JAY JOHANSEN
Acrylic on canvas (40 x 40 inches)
Price on request
JayJohansen@msn.com


JUROR'S COMMENTS
"URBAN INNOCENCE V is staggering and awakens listless eyes immediately.  It stimulates impatient attempts to devour it in a single, large, visual gulp, although this approach could prove impossible and wasteful.  Thorough attention is owed to the wild and intricate work of the fierce yet transparent splash of red which has its own motives for its indeterminate manner of teasing with destruction and construction at once.  Contemplation of the large, expressive eyes of the woman, who appears uncertain of when, if or how to surface, will deepen understanding and the ensuing relationship with her will blossom.  Scrupulous exploration of her skin will be rewarded with the discovery of involute and irresistible patterns of gentle colours and textures caught in a beautiful state of attrition as the features are revealed.  A measured and temperate assimilation of this exceptional painting will allow ample opportunity to savor and appreciate it as it deserves."
