Charlotte McAdams - Landscape 10 - 1st Place, 2-D Art
Acrylic on canvas
36 x 36
"Contrasts abound in this lyrical image! The visual moves between orange and blue, vivid and dull, dark and light, soft and hard edges, etc.… create a surface tension that moves this non-illusionary painting into a piece about deep space and advancing foreground. Over a longer view this work delivers even more complex shapes, colors, and edges that vibrate and sing. Landscape 10 shares an unavoidable kinship to the painted works of artists Paul Klee and Hans Hoffman, wherein these concerns held so much prominence."
