'Women and their experiences drive Victoria Selbach's artwork, so it is no coincidence that she is inspired by movies that do the same. Her painting Shatter, which was inspired by Chasing Amy and will appear in the Movie Night exhibition, depicts a naked woman breaking through an array of comic books, no longer confined by the box that women are usually held within. "The individuals at the center of both the film Chasing Amy and the painting Shatter confront the false choice of boxes and stereotypes," Selbach explains. "Both works assert that we will not be defined or contained by the dictates of a narrative written by others."--American Art Collector
