Juror Comments: Thought provoking first comes to mind when contemplating “Paradise Lost” by Josh Connell. The artist took the risk to address a challenging theme during challenging times, and the outcome is a beautifully executed charcoal drawing.

About the Artist:

Josh Connell is a self-taught artist, focusing primarily on drawing human beings with photographic precision using charcoal and graphite. He has been creating these pieces for the past 10 years, slowly sharpening his skills. He is just now at a point where he is happy to begin entering the art world and exhibiting his work. For 20 years he has worked with exceptional children in group homes and in schools which he feels has afforded him a unique perspective on the human condition. Children have been his greatest life teachers and, in his art, he is attempting to convey the honesty found in children’s humanity.

His work titled Hope won a 2021 Art in the County Jurors’ Choice Award. He also earned a People's Choice Award at the Faces and Places juried exhibition at the Parrott Gallery in 2020.
