NAA High School Scholarship Results 2015
Congratulations to the 2015 winners of the NAA Scholarships
Judges Comments: Spence's work embraces a strong range of skills, concepts, and feelings. In particular, Window to the Soul and Gift of Nature demonstrated excellent drawing skills and conceptual play. A personal interpretation was clear in Mom's World and your self-portrait. The chess set was an interesting step into 3D work with each piece individually crafted, yet united by style, color,
Page 6 of 9
Judges Comments: The bold double portrait Hot and Cold was a powerful play on an individual figure and on multiple facets of personality. Bonez makes clever use of a hat on one skeleton to pique interest, enrich the pictorial space, and play on notions of life and death. Safari offered a rich sense of landscape as well as a journey into, perhaps, memory.
Judges Comments: Your vivid self-portrait was wonderfully expressive and vital. The female figure was a terrific study in light and dark and the Torsos combined both a sense of play and a fresh take on the figure study. Girl with cactus was an interesting take on a personal landscape with symbols and textural interest. Finally, the piece that combined a (perhaps) playful skeleton and a figure was a most imaginative interpretation of the bones project, especially the dramatic shadows of both figures.

Judges Comments: The deep tones of the self portrait lend a serious and studied feeling to the piece. The still life with polka-dotted cloth backdrop was lively take on a standard motif; the lush fruit played against the rich background color and shaped dots beautifully. Home, the wood block print, was a satisfying but provocative piece with deep space and a face superimposed on a familiar room.
