I recently listened to a judge explain his rationale for selecting certain works in a show... mainly that he really felt the composition was critical in his selections. But, it occurred to me the next morning (after pondering why my favorites were not winners), that his bias, based on the pieces chosen (whether he realized it or not) was a "Bulls-eye" type composition and realistic representation.
The Bulls-eye can be very effective and is not wrong by any sense of the imagination. However, I would argue against it being the "best" type of composition in favor of "a" type of composition. I'm actually not a fan of the bulls-eye so much, but that my dear friends, is MY bias.
He went on to challenge us to figure out what pieces we might choose if we had to select only 6 favorites out of more than 80 pieces of art. I strongly suspect we might have had as many different permutations of the winners as we had guests in the show.
Yet another reason to pick only the art YOU love.
