Overview:

SHATTERED, MarinMOCA's 6th annual Fall National Exhibition, was juried by Kenneth Baker, Art Critic for the San Francisco Chronicle. Baker selected 48 artworks from hundreds of entries to design an exhibition that pushes the range of the theme's meanings. The theme's reference to disruption, change, destruction, and splintering gave artists the opportunity to explore the positive and negative connotations of such actions. Panta Rei, a painting by San Jose resident Emanuela Harris-Sintamarian, contemplates the ways that shattering can be productive through the combination of colorful, dynamic shapes that indicate, as its title suggests, everything is in motion. Constant movement and change in the world means that no one thing can be experienced in precisely the same way by different people. Monica Lundy of Oakland explains that her entry, 31298, based on the mug shot of a female inmate from San Quentin, considers how the "correctional facility has a degenerating effect upon the inmate." Lundy deftly connects form and content as her painting about a broken inmate is broken itself, with blots of paint distorting the inmate's face and numerical identity. In addition to pushing the range of the theme's meanings, the exhibition featured a range of media, from paintings to encaustic (wax), digital media, and sculpture.
