Linn Meyers

In stock (1000 items available)
Washington, DC–based artist Linn Meyers is best known for her hand-drawn lines and tracings for large-scale installations. This book provides a comprehensive survey of her site-specific wall drawings in museums and galleries since 2000, and of Meyers's intricate preparatory drawings and plans. Requiring much stamina, these projects involve drawing in the space over the course of days, sometimes weeks, accumulating lines into dense, intricate compositions. This scale allows Meyers to respond to architectural spaces and magnifies the performativity of her process. On Meyers’ Hammer Museum exhibition, Senior Curator Anne Ellegood wrote: “the sense of being present while viewing the work is also amplified at this larger scale … to see a wall drawing is to be surrounded by it and to feel oneself to be part of the work.”
