Juror's Statement


I’m honored to have been invited to judge a show of such high quality. I would like to congratulate the members of ISAP and all entrants for their fine work. I selected 58 paintings for this exhibition, but I did not select the 58 best paintings; I have no idea how I (or anyone) could do that. I selected the 58 paintings I liked best and my criteria was simple: I picked the paintings that interested, excited or moved me, the works in which I could detect and respond to the artists’ imagination, involvement, and sincerity.


Technique or design, by itself, was not a consideration in my selection. I view them as simply the artist’s means to an end. I expect the artist to be proficient enough to effectively convey his or her idea. Nor was I looking for work that was merely eccentric or bizarre.  However, I did respond to paintings that I felt were imaginative and original. Because there were so many fine works submitted, selecting only 58 paintings was not easy task. And picking the award winners was equally challenging. The award winners represent the paintings I particularly like. And there were so many to like. My congratulations to all the artists selected and awarded.
