Juror of Awards Comments:
I don't think there's a better "Harnett" than this piece!!! What a skilled technician with an outstanding, creative idea to make it 3-dimensional! This piece is more than just "fool-the-eye", it has sophisticated color harmonies and unbelievably top notch edge work in a realistic look. I really love looking at this piece. The more I look, the more I see. And for me, that doesn't usually happen with realistic paintings. It's a real eye-stopper. Congrats Joel Carson Jones for "More Than You Can Chew"! - Charles Warren Mundy
Monthly Judge's Comments (April): Wow. Another unique and original idea of trompe l'Oeil by one of the masters of the genre, Joel Carson Jones. The three-dimensionality of the dropping gumballs is incredible and creates a depth in the work that many trompe l'Oeil paintings simply are not able to achieve. The gumball machine is a perfect way to play with primary colors cast against each other and the shade and shadow of each one is done masterfully. I also enjoy the detail of the metalwork on the faceplate and the nice use of shadows throughout the painting - Joshua Rose
