|"The Ministry" by Ezuan York|
Contemporary Art Gallery Online concluded 2015 with an All Photography & Digital Art competition inviting artists to participate by submitting their own Photography and Digital Art works. The results were visually dimensional, stark and emotionally evocative.
Ezuan York received Best in Show for, “The Ministry”; a black & white photograph strategically colorized and developed as a futuristic runway or overpass, tucked in a lonely city.
“Wheel No. 5”, by Sonia Melnikova –Raich, was selected as Gallery Choice. The dizzying ordinal elapses from a sequence of images which gradually develop in complexity.
Claire Z received First Place for, “Domaine Mist” and Gary Horsfall received Second Place for, “Derelict Barn”. Both portraits are peppered by solitary land marks and vast acreage wherein the onlooker is awakened with the diurnal course.
“Studying iPhone” by, Zachary Garret was awarded, Third Place. The panorama is a contemporary enigma on style and leisure. An expression of duality is used to challenge perceptions of cultural freestyle and the restraint of consumerism.
Seffen Fiasst’s “Sphere” won Fourth Place for its refreshing clarity, a translucent image which simply quenches thirst and also makes the heart smile; while Jaime Frey’s “Rayna” received Fifth Place as a reminder of humanity’s struggle with resolution, body image and self-deprecation.
Honorable Recognitions were awarded to Lori Shoaf for a still life oasis entitled, “Puddle and Reflection” and also to, David J. Thompson for, “Gallery Space”; a vivid geometric collage hearkening to the manifold interpretations of a museum experience.
