Donna Dennis is one of those wonderful unsung artists. Here is this person who for as long as I have known her, that is to say for well over two decades, has been building an alternate vision of New York City in the heart of New York City. The city itself has changed so much but in her loft she has replicas of how it once was. Donna has been able, both in her drawing and installation practice, to create situations that make you feel as one might have felt entering the city for the first time–that it is vast and sublime. That is certainly an awareness of place.
