I just received the result from the St. Louis Mock Jury and wanted to share my observations with anyone who might be interested.
To those who have been following my earlier blog:
I don't jury with the images that benefit from a great title, but I do jury with images that are distinctly different from "same-old, same-old".
Here is the response I plan to send the directors of the show:
<"I have to tell you, I'm disappointed with the response from the juror, or were there more than one? I don't know.
"Blending images from the real world, I create a new reality existing only in my imagination. My goal is to seduce the observer, however briefly, into thinking such a scene may actually exist."
Here is the Juror's comment:
"Are these digitally altered from originals or taken by the artist? If so. then photography is the category
if applying to St. Louis."
Digital Art category. Why does the juror ask the question and then assume the answer that puts me in the wrong category? Why doesn't he assume "digitally altered" like the category states?
..seduced... into thinking such a scene may actually exist" prove the effectiveness of my art?
