It was a year ago, August 22, 2010, that we bid farewell to Linn Meyers’s engrossing and graceful wall mural, at the time being, created as part of our Intersections series. As you’ll see in the video titles, the work was intended to be painted over three months earlier, but both museum staff and visitors couldn’t bear to see it go. Echoing lines and colors from Vincent van Gogh’s The Road Menders (1889), the work drew everyone in to its mandalas, fingerprints, labyrinths, or simply its complex beauty. If you’ll be in Los Angeles, check out Linn’s show at the Hammer Museum, on view until November 6 (or maybe longer if they fall in love as we did?)
Beautiful installation, especially when viewed with the Van Gogh.
