Ian Torney's painting "At The Horizon - Spring, Summer, Fall 2017" wins Blue Ribbon honors at the Milton Art Center Gallery 334 Third Annual Juried Exhibition

The triptych "At The Horizon - Spring, Summer, Fall 2017" consisting of three 12-inch by 12-inch panels has won Blue Ribbon honors at the Third Annual Juried Exhibition at the Milton Art Center.

Exhibition Juror Jim Stroud commented of the work that "I was drawn to Torney's bold and aggressive use of paint, where the image or motif is really at the surface of the paint. Torney displays a passion for the materiality of paint - seductive and juicy qualities heightened by the use of a medium that gives it it's sexy shine, further drawing attention to the paint itself.  The sense is that the painting was created out in the observable landscape exists, as paint and image coalesce into one despite suggestion of an observed motif."
