"I had the distinct pleasure of going to the opening for a new show at Heidi Cho last week that features the work of my old friend, artist Jessica Cannon. Her work in the group exhibition, entitled "This Time Next Year…," is
a provocative and beguiling series of tiny dioramas of each of her
previous bedrooms, set into matchboxes and displayed side by side. Says
I have always been interested in concepts of place.
It is an idea that stands for more than a physical location or a moment
in time. Place is a combination of these factors, colored by memory,
emotion and experience. It can instill a sense of ownership and
sometimes a sense of loss. My recent work is an effort to reconstruct
places that I’ve seen and then lost.."
