Our noteworthy Curatorial Review Committee was most impressed by your superb oeuvre such as "MR. & MRS BATES JOY"which resonates with a profound visual narrative as you reveal the invisible within the visible. The spiritual artistic journey that you portray in your stellar oeuvre was quite impressive and was a triumph of personal expression.
"Your oeuvre" generated a profound sense of symbolism while reflecting a universal message. We salute you on your aesthetically absorbing oeuvre which reverberates with a dynamic textural sense and powerful visceral shapes. We were enthralled by the emotive quality of "CLOSER TO FUTURE"which reflects your fine talent and vibrant visual intensity of colors.
Your compelling " JOY TO DISCOVER" conveys your unique artistic vision of capturing the impalpable as you seize the essence of the emotional and physical experience.
