Stephen Petronio’s melancholy, disturbingly beautiful new Architecture of Loss…is not trying to show us mourning as a response to loss; he’s showing us loss as absence and the evanescence of supporting structures. …it feels the way a room feels when someone dear to you has gone away for a long time.
