BEST IN SHOW

"SIDE EFFECTS"
JIM HALLER

 
 
 
 

Ink and pills (28 x 23 inches)
www.jimhaller.com

JUROR'S COMMENTS

"SIDE EFFECTS is arresting.  Light travels into a dark space and uncovers a man who looks back at the surprised and concerned viewer with a single, sad and tired eye that seems to plead for help.  Half of his face is left in darkness as if already plundered by the advancing column of pills on the left which aim in his direction.  Their measured and precise placement alludes to the timed, repetitive routine that medication demands for its survival and eventual occupation.  The cracking and breaking forehead indicates the attrition of his peace of mind.  The pills line up according to the colour wheel and add visual decoration to the otherwise black and white composition.  The face is described with perfect accuracy and sedulous care using pointillism as a tool which results in a gritty and interesting impression. Traditional and contemporary practices coexist in this courageous, dramatic and significant artwork." -- GALLERY RING

 
 
 
 


DIAMOND AWARD OF EXCELLENCE
"WILDLIFE EXPEDITION"
CHRISTINE COLUMBO

JUROR'S COMMENTS

"WILDLIFE EXPEDITION is a superlative work of art.  A boy displays discipline and equanimity in his posture as if situated in a classroom instead of the great outdoors.  This incongruity between his demeanor and the misty setting causes uncertainty and produces a mysterious quality and a magical vibration in the picture.  His distant, dignified and serious countenance can be likened to a portrait of a historical, royal figure or conqueror rather than this youthful figure with narrow shoulders who sports a sample of mass-produced fashion indicative of today.  His clasped hands, which come forward at the bottom of the picture, offer a decent shot at pulling him out of the mystical and surreal picture into reality.  An excellent comprehension of colour, mastery of the medium, and an outstanding, artistic instinct and sensitivity are abundant in this flawless and stellar painting." -- GALLERY RING
