Notes:
Commentary by Jurer, Christina Sealy:

In the case of the "Best in Show" winner "Are We Awake Yet?" I was interested by the artist's choice of collaged (recycled) paper for this portrait. The paper was used in both a technically impressive and creative way and could also be considered to be related to subject on a conceptual level. Aesthetically, the portrait worked well both representationally and as an abstract image. As well as describing the subject's face, the variations in the sizes, directions and tones of the paper also created an interesting visual pattern of movement.
