Artist Linn Meyers normally creates work characterized by a cumulative sequence of marks, meditatively applied. Here, in a darkened room, natural and artificial light is introduced and animates Two Works. The light passes through plain and colored gauze, creating three-dimensional, illusionistic works which reveal a painterly sensibility.
