Oakland-based artist Cannon Dill’s latest exhibit“In My Own Time” will be at the Spoke Art gallery in San Francisco December 5-19. The show features new illustrations loosely exploring the idea of place: the time it takes to absorb one’s surroundings as well as the new construction and developments happening in both Oakland and San Francisco.
“The theme is loosely around the idea of taking the time to soak in your surroundings, recognizing space. We all know prices of housing are increasing dramatically in the bay area, so it was hard to not make work about that situation. Also the gap between San Francisco and Oakland is sort of blurring together- you have a lot of construction and development happening in both cities. This body of work is a vague conversation about that.”
