Jury´s failure
The jury, which met in Madrid last 26 June 2014, was composed by Mª Victoria Hernández
Pérez, Director of Culture and Historic Heritage department of Cabildo Insular de la Palma;
Juan Teodoro Vidal, director of Museum Casa de la Moneda; Gérard Espí, winner of the
second prize Carmen Arozena 2013; Isabel Elorrieta, manager of G&E magazine
specialized in prints and editions; and the artist Enrique González.
They unanimously decided rewarding with the first prize the print “Alter Ego IV”,
impressive linoleum with a face full of details executed with great skills by Magda Szplit
(1978, Kielce). On the other hand, "Scenery over there_014_05" from Taichi Kodama
(1978, Kagoshima) was awarded with the second prize, because of the complexity using
30 different plates to achieve a colourful silkscreen print of abstract shapes.
Magda Szplit, degree in Pedagogy and professor of fine arts at the University of Krakow
since 2009, has also a printmaking workshop specializing in linoleum together with artist
Henryk Krolikowski in Krakow. Her great dexterity to handle this technique has led her to
obtain different awards as the of the 5th International Biennial of graphic art "Terra" from
Sant Carles de la Ràpita or the Kielce Prize Przedwiosnie (Poland) on different occasions.
Her works have been exhibited in Odense (Denmark), Chicago (USA) and Sandomierz
(Poland), and in others collective events of printmaking as the International Triennial of
Engraving of Macedonia, the international Biennial of Varna (Bulgaria), the International
Print Biennial of Sarcelles (France), the Triennial of graphic work Ulus in Belgrade
(Serbia), the International Penang Exhibition in Malaysia or the International Biennial
Bharat Bhavan in India.
Taichi Kodama, doctoral student in fine arts, specialized in printmaking by the University
of Kyoto, has obtained in recent years several international awards such as the special
prize of the International Silkscreen Exhibition "Around the World" in 2013, the award for
technical merit at the Universal Engraving Exhibition in Istanbul or the special prize of
Miniprint in Finland in 2010. His work has been exhibited in various exhibition spaces in
Germany, Poland, France, or Japan, and in 2013 was recipient of grant from the Asahi
Shinbum Foundation.
