Our thank you to the judges and nominators for the thoughtful time spent.
From the many admirable submissions to this first scholarship iteration, Tricia Gahagan’s project stood out. Gahagan’s imagery, statement, and philosophy shared many of the same artistic and personal qualities that John exhibited. With her quiet and contemplative series “11:11 Connecting With Consciousness,” Gahagan poses visual and conceptual questions. Akin to John, she also works within realms of perception and paradoxes, observation and the everyday. Nevertheless, her carefully composed and considered images come from a completely different well, and yield completely different results. Like John was in 2003, Gahagan is both on a quest and at a cusp. She will benefit immeasurably from the honorarium, course, and path that this award will allows. I very much look forward to following her journey.”
