'Driss Ouadahi Takes on Fences in Latest Exhibit' at Hosfelt Gallery, SF Gate Reports

Jessica Zack, SFGATE, July 13, 2016

Jessica Zack reviews Driss Ouadahi's fifth solo at Hosfelt Gallery entitled Driss Ouadahi: Breach in the Silence, which features new works from his ongoing Fences series alongside his architectural canvases. His photorealistic depictions of  the slashed open and bent chain-link fences express the artist's deeper understanding of the risky migrations and the urgency of the plights of refugees from the Middle East.


 "Ouadahi’s fence paintings are powerfully suggestive of the cultural and political significance of boundaries and human migration at a time when border-tightening figures prominently in political discourse in both the United States and Europe," Zack comments.
