MarinMOCA presents “Terrain,” an exhibition of paintings in the Second Floor Gallery by MarinMOCA artist member, Janet Bogardus. Janet’s work invites the viewer to contemplate the earth’s surface from above. At once landscapes and maps, these paintings do not portray specific locales. Instead they examine the way we look at our environment - and consider our tendency to impose order and human aesthetics on nature.
The paintings also celebrate the joys of mapmaking and landscape art, but also hint at their limits. Using collage fragments, flowing washes and sweeping brush marks, Bogardus’ paintings suggest the uncontrollable flow of nature. This exhibit is free to the public.
