Nadiah Fellah reviews an exhibition of rarely seen works by Jay DeFeo at Hosfelt Gallery, San Francisco, on view through October 22, 2011.

Fellah notes that the show "brings together over forty works by DeFeo, including graphite drawings, paintings, photographs, and photocopies, many of which have never been shown before... Through the diverse representation of media in the show, one can truly appreciate the artist’s ability to scrutinize a single motif in multiple ways, as well as her tendency to revel in the physical quality of materials."
