In particular, we have highly appreciated the way your approach explores the blurry boundaries between perception and experience, as well as your insightful inquiry into the elusive nature of the moving image challenges the viewers' perceptual parameters, establishing deep involvement both on the emotional aspect and on the intellectual one.

15th Annual Summer All Media Juried International Art Exhibition
Juror's statement
KEN CLARK of Christchurch, New Zealand has a sense of elongation in terms of his pictorial space and his work "Conception" shines out. The high saturated color together with the central light effect helps to speak out about the birthing process. In a similar format, his "Phoebe 16031" is an intermixture of the pixelated with the tighter realism suggestive of a kind of mystery woman. The intense yellow contrasting color adds to a kind of dynamism.
