Juror's Note

The point of view is what’s makes an image exciting, and in this case, we see a very personal statement that is a celebration. In this piece, Shani painted soft pastels on corrugated cardboard. The texture of the carton makes it not a simple task but she manages to use it to her advantage in telling the necessary story to include the important details. From the ring on her finger to the nail polish on her toes we can see what the artist sees and thinks as she observed every detail of that moment sitting there on the 1st of May. My decision to choose this artwork for first place of the woman’s show, is due to the fact that this piece allows us to experience the art of a woman, from a woman’s point of view.
