Special Guest Juror's Message

There were many other great pieces but that one hit me right away.

It really capture the essence of a free spirit. The artist treated the subject with respect. The woman's pose communicate a sense of confidence and joy. In many ways I connected with the artist representation of a curvy woman.

Well done Zhi-huang.
