Jurors:
Bao LeDe:
Bao LeDe came to the U.S. in 1989 and has been living and working in the Boston area for more than a decade. Expressionism has always been his genre. His paintings, in brilliant colors, are painted boldy and dynamically with gestures which are clearly influenced by traditional Chinese calligraphy. Perhaps the distance between the United States and China make him think more about his own culture for he fell in love with ink painting, the beauty of black and white. He uses a lot of black in his paintings. Bao continues his experiments with collage from fifteen years ago, gluing rice paper on canvas layer by layer, then painting over the result. He is a painter full of an inner energy that emerges in every stroke. His new collage paintings are gentle, but quietly powerful.
Andrew Kusmin:
Andrew is a Signature Member of the National Watercolor Society and Audubon Artists as well as a member of the Allied Artists of America, Southwestern Watercolor Society and The New England Watercolor Society, where he served four years as President. He owns his own Gallery in Plymouth and has recently published a new book entitled “Palette of Dreams”
Dan Cutrona:
I rode my bike to my first interview with an editor. I borrowed my brothers car the next day to go shoot my first assigment. That was 17 years ago. Nowadays, I promise not to arrive at a shoot sweaty and winded. I will drive my own car. But I like to think I still bring the excitement of a teenager to any assignment that comes my way.
