The way one approaches to their works and the uniqueness of it, and the pursuit to pursue it is what creates a new original expression. I am looking forward to encountering to such works.

I feel that there were more artists with individual motif in this year’s contest than usual. Even if the starting point was from familiar matter, I prefer them to challenge their works in terms of scale and spread from there. I expect to see works that challenge taking advantage of the features of public space, which differ from closed galleries.

Although amusing works with contents such as 3D and moving images were chosen, there were many great painting works as well. However, there are hardly any works with new ways of expression and most of them are just results of tenacious conflict in closed world. The talent of which will change the era is yet to be found.

Although there were some new approaches towards expression, which surprised me as always, there were many artists who expressed in academic media. I believe there are possibilities to both. However, I expect them to shift from the creating works to exhibiting and “showing” them.

The fact that modern art has spread to the next generation can be observed from students’ works. As the taste of expression were sophisticated and refined than before, it also seems that the scale itself and the range of sensitivity has narrowed. It can be said that there is less collapse as a whole and that the cohesion has increased.

Although it is an era which leading ism does not exist, the fact that the multipolar genre of works could be found and that each individual searched for their indigenous world made this contest remarkable. Above all, it is promising that there were numerous artists with unique visions.

Being a judge in this contest is difficult since there are artists from various genres and evaluation criterion is not defined. However, it is also fun at the same time because there are only few restrictions unlike other contests and therefore, free and extensive expressions can be seen. As always, unique and compelling works were chosen. I am looking forward to the development of each works.
