Juror Notes: Convention can rule in art. Most paintings have corners. Space moves in predictable ways. Or perhaps not. From breaking the round boundary to the tumult of orchestrated shapes, graphic but still building form, all with the clear connection to the theme (time), the artist has made something distinctive and reminded us to step outside the rectangle.
