Veils, an exhibition of new paintings will be on view at the Polina Berlin Gallery in New York, NY through June 24th. Cannon’s mystic landscapes confront time with a sense of ontological awe. She employs personal and symbolic language in concert with geometric motifs to depict the horizon and the space beyond it.
