Our 3rd place winning painting, “Path of Least Resistance” was created at the Battle of the Brush, season 2 grand finale art competition. The work was voted for 3rd place to the theme of “Evolution”. Jennifer Hardwood and John Shaw approached this piece with a technical and conceptual consideration of what they consider to be contemporary “evolution”. Technically, they’ve explored a transition from basic line work through rendered paint, and finally into stencils and other approaches used in contemporary printing and imaging techniques. Conceptually, the piece flows from basic organic/biological life into a modernized collection of manufactured and branded goods. By combining these two overall approaches, two artists were able to critique the changes and evolutions in contemporary societies.
