It was very exciting to watch this show come together. Koch and Douglas have both changed the way I looked at mundane objects. Over the last year, whenever I went to Jennifer’s frame shop (Frames for you and Mona Lisa Too) she would have a new “Charm” to show me. I was charmed by each one - wanting to enter into the small space with the objects. Koch has a way of seeing/saving objects that gives them a new “value”- which is another charm of her work. With Jordan, I heard his stories about the long arduous task of cleaning out his father’s house which was such a contrasted to his clarity of vision. He has highlighted objects from chaos in a way that speaks of a time and a person. I related to his images, as my father passed away a little over a year ago and he saved tool related stuff in his workroom. Tools had great value in his mind and the quantity is sometimes astonishing. Jordan’s work helps me pause and give more thought to some of 'my father’s things.'
