Anne Minich’s modest, piquant pieces of graphite and colored pencil finish the exhibition. As complementary pieces, “Shift” and “Sjuan” each thinly sketch the torso and trunk of an anatomically rendered figure in a pastel veil, translucent and amorphously lain. It’s a light and unexpectedly provocative bit of genderplay, and the late inclusion of the human form is welcome in an exhibition — and medium — that asks us to peel away a lot of layers.
