From the jurors:
Catherine Canac-Marquis’ work is characterized by a sophisticated and mature vision. The beautiful structure of her carefully rendered compositions, the ambient light, and her sensitive color palette are hallmarks of an artist who has a confident and commanding grasp of her medium. Throughout the work there is a quiet, contemplative approach but also strong intent which amplifies and addresses issues of conservation, governance, and environmental issues.
