Meditations On The Apocalyptic

"Meditations on the Apocalyptic is an exhibition of recent works by five California artists who deal with the potential catastrophic consequence of human folly. As an artist the theme of ultimate destruction via the nuclear has been a long time personal concern for me. As a curator I selected these five artists because their diverse yet collective voices approach the broader theme of ultimate annihilation from many directions, allowing in the curatorial practice a far greater voice than is possible as a single artist. Each artist has contributed new work to this exhibit. While expecting answers is a romantic, utopian notion, we must ask the questions, both of ourselves and the world we live and die in."
Patrick Merrill, director, W. Keith and Janet Kellogg University Art Gallery

Featuring artists: Sierra Pecheur, Christopher Hinton, Mark Bryan, Robynn Smith, Duncan Simcoe
Sierra Pecheur was interviewed here on So Cal Potters last year. I am going to be talking with her about the work for this show and will post more images of it soon!
