Judges Comments

  • A tableau of color, shape and pattern work together to produce an elegant symmetry that seems to float as effortlessly as the balloons pressing against the ceiling. At first glance, my eyes are drawn to that colorful doorway. But then, the red lamp pulls me back. From there I search a room of balloons and arrive at two children happily immersed in their pursuit of a prize - a prize currently drifting on the ceiling.
