In her eighth solo exhibition at Hosfelt Gallery, Reed Danziger presents new works on paper, ranging in scale from 22 x 22 to 40 x 40 inches. Working with ink, watercolor, graphite and gouache, Danziger allows the interaction of materials and the accumulation of marks to determine the development of each piece.

Danziger has developed a visual language that captures moments of transition and flux - the emergence, transformation, and dissolution of systems and structures. Although her work draws some inspiration from scientific, mathematical, and biological forms, her process is essentially intuitive - an organic and gradual build-up of intricate layers and spontaneous drips and splashes. Precariously balancing control and chaos, she allows the unpredictable subtleties of the various mediums to dictate the evolution of the composition. Erasing and obscuring is oftentimes just as important as the introduction of new forms.

Born in Berkeley, CA in 1966, Danziger received an M.F.A. from the San Francisco Art Institute in 1995 and has been represented by Hosfelt Gallery since her graduation. Her work has been presented in solo exhibitions in New York, Boston, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, and was recently included in a traveling museum exhibition of work from the Frederick R. Weisman Foundation Collection. Danziger lives in the Bay Area.
