Desirée Holman: Sophont in Action

Take a trip up to the diRosa Preserve in Napa to see “Desirée Holman: Sophont in Action.” Holman’s work explores sci-fi, NewAge mysticism, and the iconography associated with it. Holman has long been interested in creative, spiritual, and social fulfillment through technology’s uses, and her body of work speaks to conceptions of “otherness” and identity.

Infinite Sustain

Lot 21 Gallery is featuring photography from Reuben Wu, whose work sits somewhere between expeditionary imagery, Surrealist painting and 1970s concept album art. Reuben’s photos are rooted in reality, though he uses time-lapse photography and various merging processes to create scenes which feel simultaneously real and surreal.
