Oakland-based artist Chris Fraser, who recently joined the gallery’s roster, debuts two new bodies of work in Animated, his first solo exhibition at Gallery Wendi Norris. The show features a group of light-activated sculptures composed of layered arrangements of perforated metal bordered by luminous glass tubes containing five compressed noble gases that create different colors when electricity passes through them, inviting shifts in sensory and spatial perception in the viewer. Animated also showcases a complementary series of intricate black-and-white photo-grams produced by the artist in the darkroom using the same sculptural materials. The exhibition will open on Thursday, September 10 with a public reception from 6–8PM, and will be on view through October 31.
