In this video, see the selection and installation process behind Jean Meisel‘s 50–65 Horizon Line, her Intersections contemporary art project on view at the Phillips through May 4.
Installation of Washington-based artist Jean Meisel’s 50–65 Horizon Line is nearly complete in an intimate gallery on the second floor of the house. Meisel began creating these tiny paintings, none measuring more than six inches, during the 1970s and hasn’t stopped since. While the works might evoke memories of landscapes and seascapes encountered by viewers, these endearing scenes are in fact all created from the artist’s imagination.
Meisel will discuss her work in an Artist’s Perspective at 6:30 pm on Thursday, January 30.
