Making Space

Through Jan. 10, 2015

Making Space
City Limits Gallery (300 Jefferson St., Oakland) always aims to push conceptual boundaries, forcing the viewer to rethink assumptions by highlighting thoughtful experimentations. So it’s not surprising that the current show, curated to celebrate the launch of its new Flat Files program, focuses on 2-D works that evoke further dimension. Entitled Making Space, the show features six artists from the program, which will showcase the gallery’s collection of flat files through an online gallery and store. All of the artists work primarily in 3-D and time-based mediums, but maintain crucial 2-D elements in their practices. One of these artists is Mary Anne Kluth, who works as a restorative artist at Children’s FairyLand. Kluth grew up in the field with her geologist parents, but is personally more interested in fake rocks. Obsessed with theme parks, she photographically catalogues imitation landscaping at places like Disneyland. Next, she cuts out an arbitrary section using the “magic wand” tool in Photoshop, then collages those sections into layered landscapes reminiscent of late nineteenth-century paintings of sublime nature. Her works probe into the cultural obsession with imitation, highlighting how representations gradually override their sources as mental reference points. Other featured artists include Sarah Hotchkiss, David Lasley, Jodie Mack, Sam Mell, and John Zane Zappas. Free
