Jessica Cannon (b. 1979, Brooklyn, NY) lives and works in Brooklyn.

She earned an MFA from Parsons School of Design and teaches at Parsons and CUNY Queens College. She is a recipient of the Brooklyn Arts Council’s Community Arts Fund Grant and has exhibited in solo and group shows at Winston’s Los Angeles, Honey Ramka (Brooklyn, NY), Crush Curatorial (Amagansett, NY), the Brooklyn Academy of Music, and the Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art, among others.

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.
