"Overall, I was looking for fresh and interesting work that captured the imagination. Something that displayed excellence in craft and has a strong concept.
The imagery in the "Rat" is strong and stood out amongst the other pieces of work. At first glance the circular shape, the rays, and its uneven contour in black and white is striking and made even more valuable with the discovery that white rats form the shape, all craving for the mound of rice in the middle. A true depiction of the behavior of the rodents. A very smart and visually interesting piece."
