1st Prize was awarded to Shackleton in recognition of this painting for "Dream Logic, 28th Annual Juried Exhibition" at Station Gallery on December 16th, 2020.
Jurors: Matthew Kyba, Olinda Casimiro, Georgia Fullerton
Notes from the jury: “There’s a wonderful invigorating energy in this work. Here you’ll find deliberate and accidental mark making. The artist is paying attention to both negative and positive spaces and acknowledges that this painting is a three dimensional piece by working the edges. This work makes you stop and think. What is this? It’s familiar, yet fictional. It reminds us of something we’ve never seen before. The surreal elements really fit with the exhibition theme and capture the title of the show. It really works well.”
Painting: Frosted Glass (Toronto + Minden), 30" x 30" acrylic on canvas
