Hosfelt Gallery

The Mission, Dogpatch & Potrero Hill

Trancelike states are often induced by Hosfelt, where visitors step from gritty sidewalks into dreamy, finely detailed interior worlds. Close inspection reveals that Crystal Liu's painterly still life is a photo of irises frozen in water, Rina Banerjee's shamanistic assemblages incorporate feathers and tiny bells and Julie Chang's transcendent wall drawings weave together textile patterns that defy international borders.
