Juror Statement – Jean Burdick’s incorporates layers of translucent and patterned printed and painted surfaces to create a striking rendition of “Thompson Neely House” at Washington Crossing Historic Park. The dignity and grace of the image reflect the historic importance of this cherished Bucks County landmark.
The Thompson-Neely House
Washington Crossing Park has been a favorite area for me to walk for many years. Recently I have spent more time there, appreciating the historic buildings and seasonal gardens. I photographed the Thompson-Neely House with its symmetry and stone façade and created a photo silkscreen image. Printing first on vellum, I then added hand painted areas for the facade and background.
