Gail Wight is a contemporary American artist known for her experimental approach to art.

Wight innovates in various mediums including sculpture, video, interactive media, silk and digital prints, and photography. On her technique, Wight says: “I enjoy developing novel ways of working with traditional materials, combining them with new technologies or with the living world and its detritus.” She focuses on themes such as the interplay between art and biology, theories of evolution, cognition, and deep time, and through this unique lens, Wight reframes ordinary, forgotten objects of the biological world into works of art.
