Where R U? by Jennifer McChristian
11 x 14 Oil

Judge's Comments: This artist’s work is characterized by a beautifully direct technique.. I am drawn in by the abstract shapes of red in the foreground. The vertical elements frame the subject who sits in front of a dark background. I love the title of this painting as well, it helps clarify the narrative element of this contemporary subject. I wonder who he is calling...a friend? a lover? I am intrigued by the lost and found edge treatment of the figure which unites it with the surroundings. Another little gem! - Robert Lemler
