Chicago Tribune Review July 31 2014, by Lori Waxman                                    Quote: “Artist Leona Christie takes cues from her brother Gavin, who is autistic and has an immense capacity for storing and organizing facts. He ritually hand writes and types blocky lists of MTV New Year specials watched, dates when shorts have been worn, travel details for driving 15 miles to Flint, Mich. She absorbs his intensity in a series of pristine, white-on-white prints that embed these inventories in the surface of heavy white paper, as if by sheer force.”
