Eeli PolliComment

I met Jaanika when I was studing art in Tallinn, we were teaching young artists in a summer school and we got friends. I have been following her about 15 years now, buying her photographs and visiting her in New York. Here is some information about her and some of her drawings I like....

Jaanika Peerna is an artist living and working in New York. She works at the crossroads of digital and traditional media, often dealing with the themes of water, simplicity and silence in drawing, video, and installations. Her 2010 exhibitions include the Dorsky Curatorial Projects in New York, Dubai Video Biennial and solo exhibitions at ArtDepoo Gallery in Tallinn, Estonia as well as at A.R.C. Fine Art in Fairfield, CT.  She has exhibited her work extensively in entire New York metropolitan area as well as in Paris, Lisbon, and Rome. She has an MFA in intermedia design from SUNY New Paltz, and she has worked as teaching artist at DIA:Beacon and the Visual Thinking Strategies project of the Soros Foundation.
