Juror: Neil Jussila. Comment by Mr. Jussila, “Laura Anderson’s large moody portrait caused me to first look at a sad mouth, but then . . . the eye gesture and the thickened neck gave pause to reflect on one whose life has been difficult. This painting reflects a true reality of the way things sometimes are. Don’t just look at the work. Try to experience it from something that you’ve experienced.”
