Leslie Parke - Best in Show

Painter Leslie Parke has received the award Best in Show-Single Image for China in the Ocean, which was selected for Still Point Art Gallery's current exhibition, Ordinary Everyday Objects

China in the Ocean is a sober piece, its colors somewhat pale and meek, its concept subtle and gentle; fragile, heirloom dishes cleansing in a vast ocean of water; quiet moments of cleansing; dishes left pristine and fresh. This image has depth and power...emotional and spiritual power. There is so much here for the mind and spirit to connect with.
