Linn Meyers creates elaborate, finely detailed drawings that straddle the definitions of ‘certainty’ and ‘happenstance.’ Earlier systems-based works strove for control; using series of grids or interior structures, drawings grew from simple geometric forms to encompass large, flowing fields of lines, which delicately amplified into tangible vibrations. This method eventually evolved to embrace the many imperfections inherent in what has become a looser, more instinctive drawing method, one that develops independent of expectations.
Meyers has had solo exhibitions at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, the Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C., and the American University Museum at the Katzen Center in Washington, D.C., among other venues. She has participated in group exhibitions at institutions including the Hirshhorn, the Phillips Collection, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the Corcoran Gallery of Art and the National Museum of Women in the Arts, all in Washington, D.C., the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Mattress Factory in Pittsburgh.
