always, it's with much anticipation and excitement that I first view
the entire body of slides or entries of a competition.
And it takes several viewings before the actual selection process begins
and the timbre of the exhibition starts to take shape.
selected pieces are then further studied and scrutinized for originality,
experimentation, for new ideas, and for revealing a different mind
set. Making a unique statement often requires innovation, the breaking
of some rules, and/or the rebuilding of techniques and methods. The
artist has these prerogatives.
I am pleased to find in this body of work a trend towards a universal
content, a tendency towards the
abstract rather than the personal or the cliché. I hope
the viewers of the ISAP competition of 2008 will find many works
to question, and to enjoy.
