Winner of the "Takapuna Art Supplies Merit Award" in "The Pumphouse Art Awards 2007"

Theme: Modern Dilemma

Title of the painting: "Shall I...?"

Judge: Tony Ogle

Artist Statement: "My painting portraits the complexity of intimacy and the ever-changing concept of courtship in today’s "casual" society, the modern dilemma being the conflict between trust and openness versus the pain and disappointment it is likely to cause."

Judge's Comments: "Anya has created a confronting portrait of a woman who is all attitude - in your face - simultaneously powerful yet vulnerable. Painted with attitude too."
