Matters of the Heart (and Other Abnormalities): Shawn Morin

September 3, 2021 – February 5, 2022(This exhibition has passed.)

Matters of the Heart (and Other Abnormalities) explores concepts of human relationships. It seems to me that since 9/11 and Y2K, there has been a fundamental shift in the way many humans act, react and navigate the world. Add to that the current worldwide pandemic and proliferation of clinical depression, especially amongst our youth, and it is easy to perceive that the world has changed dramatically. Consequently, some humans are now far kinder and more loving than they once were, while others have grown desperate, indifferent, angry, and resentful.
