Kim Anno and Gail Wight
at Patricia Sweetow Gallery, San Francisco, California
Recommendation by Molly Enholm

Amorphous white silhouettes dominate the surface of Kim Anno’s new series of oil on aluminum paintings. Utilizing mass-produced industrial materials as the foundation for her work, Anno marks, scours, and scrapes the surfaces. The hard metallic surface onto which she then pours layers of pigment is transformed. This combination, where the unstructured fluidity of the paint dominates the man-made material, alludes to the unpredictability of nature and the uncertainty bound into the interaction between natural and human forces. This is paired with an alternate vision of these relationships. Gail Wight creates an installation with internally lit plastic poles lined with photographs of natural environments. This is complimented by audio recordings meant to reflect their environments. Wight often combines themes of art and science. Here her suspended poles resemble oversized test tubes, suggesting the human desire to control and contain the environment. Taken together, these works suggest the fallibility of such endeavors.
