When the Wind Comes Right behind the Rain presents us with artworks that, viewed collectively, also bring to mind a world that is at once deeply marked by humans and devoid of them. Evidence of human influence suffuses both the form and content of the paintings, sculptures, and prints. There we are in the plastics, silicone, artificial crystals, digital images, and discarded clothing; in the hyper-saturated, lurid colors; in the once familiar forms and objects. But the human form, when it is rendered or referenced, feels distant or absent. We enter the exhibition, then, as witnesses to our own extinction, left to contemplate the Anthropocene from after its end. Although the artworks lack the didactic qualities of the film or book, they too ask us to consider how our choices in the present will affect the future.
Including the work of artists Rebecca Aloisio, Patti Capaldi, Jennifer Paige Cohen, Melinda Laszczynski, Fabian Maraccio, Paul O'Keefe, Bret Shirley and Sarah Sutton.
