Catalogue Note

"Cornell's works are mysterious little worlds that have a great deal to do with nostalgia for some past time. Cornell always invites you to look at the world he's trying to create but never to really get involved in the world. There's always glass to keep you out. 'Look, but don't touch.' It's almost as though he's sharing some kind of a recollection with you, telling little stories."

Allan Stone
