"Supra Natural" 

When: Feb. 15-May 10 2013
Price: free

With Supra Natural, Kala Art Institute's Berkeley Central Arts Passage presents its most varied exhibition yet. Granted, it is only its second show. Nevertheless, it is not often that one finds a sort of exploded landscape painting, like the busy, collage-like acrylic pieces by Elizabeth Mooney, hanging alongside something like Sarah Fontaine's "My Failures to You, My Fellow Humans," which reads like a neurotic diary entry by a well-traveled and perhaps too-well read artist in the throes of ambivalence about her role as a "geophysical force," scrawled directly onto the gallery wall. In addition to these compellingly dissimilar pieces, one finds visually spare, mystic tableau-style prints depicting monumental candles and a man levitating into a ceiling cavity, by Bessma Khalaf, and exquisitely crafted cut paper pieces that present skeletal but complex scenes in their negative space, by Mayumi Hamanaka. It is not obvious how all of this unites beneath the theme of "Supra Natural," but that hardly matters. Supra Natural runs through May 10 at Berkeley Central Arts Passage (2055 Center St., Berkeley). 510-841-7000 or Kala.org
