Rebecca Kerlin, director of Gallery Joe, Philadelphia, says about Peerna's work:
Jaanika’s drawings elegantly interact with architecture in a way that allows the viewer to feel their presence physically as well as visually. They are both vulnerable and powerful. Her choice and mastery of her materials gives her the freedom necessary to maximize her vision.
Plastic paper is attached to a foamboard and tilted down away from the artist, as she bends forward with her hands clasping graphite and colored pencils together, spilling the lines down toward the ground, letting her upper body fall forward as loosely but forcefully as possible.
A blend of the athletic and the meditative, these works respond to the wash of water spilling over sidewalks and human barriers in the wake of the big recent hurricanes in New York and New Jersey.
