Hosfelt Gallery presents a solo show of new mixed media paintings on paper by Kolkata-born, New York-based Rina Banerjee, as an ancillary exhibition to her touring mid-career survey, currently on view at the San Jose Museum of Art.

Banerjee's sensuous and otherworldly paintings reflect both her transnational background and her mastery of materials and image-making to examine and describe the complexities of 21st century globalism.

Delicately rendered in inks, metallic leaf and collaged elements, female figures float in worlds both fluid and ambiguous. They're dislocated, detached and in states of transformation - sometimes shifting between human and bird or beast. She spins narratives relating to colonialism, environmentalism, immigration and identity, poetically tackling the big issues from the perspective of a woman of color.

Rina Banerjee (b. 1963, Kolkata, India) received a BS in Polymer Engineering and worked as a research chemist before completing her MFA at Yale in 1995. Her ambitious mid-career survey exhibition, Make Me a Summary of the World - which presents twenty years of Banerjee's large-scale installations, sculptures and paintings - is on view at the San Jose Museum of Art through October 6. It opened at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 2018 and will travel to the Fowler Museum at UCLA (December 8, 2019 - May 31, 2020), Frist Art Museum, Nashville, TN (July 24 - October 25, 2020) and Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University, Durham, NC (February 18 - July 11, 2021).
