Visiting Artist Colloquium: Linn Meyers

March 31, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:15 pm

Linn Meyers is an American, Washington, DC-based artist whose paintings, drawings, and site-specific works use repetitive applications of line and color hand-drawn on a variety of surfaces including paper, vellum, mylar, and gallery walls. Each piece begins with a single mark—a line that traces a pre-determined framework of circles, or a simple singular gesture. This first stroke defines the direction in which the entire image will evolve—each line a direct response to the mark made just before. These marks amass to create an image, which is both still and moving, ordered and chaotic, both pointing toward perfection and also wholly imperfect. At the core of the work is the artist’s own relationship to time: learning how to move back and forth between natural time, measured time, and subjective time.
