For her latest exhibition — and her first in Michigan — Los Angeles- and Maui- based fine artist Annika Banko has created a body of large-scale works that brim with evidence of physicality titled Possession and Other Matters of Desire & Cruelty. The paintings, which span three to four feet, combine bold, dripping brushstrokes mixed with tiny, understated hand-scrawled messages like “My voice/ my sex/ my power” and “this is not a love song.” The result is a series of paintings that at once convey both spontaneity and meticulousness.

Opening reception from 6-9 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 11 and Saturday, Oct. 12 at Robert Kidd Gallery; 107 Townsend St., Birmingham; 248-642-3909; robertkiddgallery.com. Event is free.
