SECTION SATIRE AND HUMOR
|FIRST PRIZE: Reza Rahimi (Iran)|
“For the exceptional expressive synthesis in communicating the epochal climate mutation and the planet’s slow turning off in an instant of great emotional power, declining its tragedy in one poetic representation, where the spatial depth and intensity of color convey solitude and nostalgia”.
“For having caught an element strongly present in the escaping of refugees across the sea, rarely considered and never represented with such emotional efficacy: the link with the land that is forcibly left behind and the desire not to lose track, for a future return”.
“For the skillful use of the numerical representation of reality in all its forms, including life itself and matter, in a simple image where even the wind, the rain and the air change in the perception and fade into a different dimension”.
