Best In Show: Wendy McClatchy, “Boxed In”
NFS | 16″ x 16″
This beautifully drawn, masterfully composed, skillfully executed piece takes Best In Show. From the delicate shadows on the surface of the table and wall to the folds in the fabric that express the weight put upon them, to the distortions looking through the glass this piece is powerful. Yet the pallet is quiet, the value shift is what gives it punch, balancing the rich value of the inside of the box against the soft tones of grays and whites, then adding a touch of color in the bowl to pull everything together, Brilliant.
