2022 Triptych Results

Nigel Hazell was our Judge for the Triptych PDI Competition last night held over Zoom from Brookhouse.

Summing up the five held back entries he said some subjectivity inevitably comes into my final choices.

In the commended position is Hepworth Gardens by Sara Cremer. I loved the feel of this triptych and it is something I’d love to see in print on a matt paper. I felt that it needed just a little more refining to help it flow as a set.

Next, we come to the Highly Commended panel and this is awarded to Wild Flowers by Neil Clarke. Being a lover of wild plants, I really enjoyed this triptych, individually these images would spring to life from a natural history book.

In the 3rd place is Postcards from Rome by Trevor Bottomley. The author has very skilfully assembled a convincing sequence of significant landmarks.

I can see both these sets framed and proudly displayed on walls.

Tonight’s 2nd place award goes to Intimate Landscapes by Sara Cremer. Yet another set I’d love to print, the sequence for me has been most thoughtfully composed and sequenced – bravo!

Which of course means that The Story of Sewing by Angela Crutchely-Rhodes takes this evening’s top slot and 1st place. The creative technique and colour harmony in this set won me over; if I had a sewing room, I’d most definitely want this on the wall. Congratulations to the author!

Congratulations Angela on achieving 1st Place and to all the other awarded members well done.

Thank you Nigel for your detailed comments it certainly added to the evenings appreciation of the Triptych’s on display.
