JURORS SELECTIONS

Margaret Minardi's Artist Statement:

"I am the mother of a bipolar, adopted child. Her middle teen years have had a profound effect on my life and my artwork. Melissa was very quiet in her early teens, only using the word “meow” to respond to questions and comments. As time went by her depression deepened and it became obvious that she was in great emotional pain. Sometimes Melissa was strong enough to valiantly fight her plight. Other times the hurting inside her could not be hidden. Her face bore screaming defeat. This series is a reaction to this psychologically charged period in Melissa’s life. Symbolism in these works include tornados, black grackles and ominous skies. Texture and pattern are prominent. For the past year I have been refining a digital monotype process that I had stumbled upon years ago in my classroom. The technique I use creates an ink grain texture that looks very much like a lithograph."
