Jonah Criswell – Fernweh

“Fernweh”
An exhibition of drawings by Jonah Criswell
ReTramp Gallery, Reuterstrasse 62, Berlin Germany
October 2015.

“These drawings for me are an act of longing for a better self. Using personal artifacts as still life subjects, I work to find and converse with my youth. Additionally, some of the works reference television shows that I watch. The conversation between my visual language and the “returned image” in all of these works describe the exchange between a strange world and a fragility that I find exciting and humane.”

    No. Don’t think they can die just yet. Thl;e&#8217rel always be a couple of people who’ll stick to these. I know, there are times when you *just* *can’t* *find* *the* *time*, but I think it’s just a phase for people like you and me. But yes, I do know of these ‘dead blogs’ of which you speak. For some, it’s just a phase.
