Will Meier’s solo show: PIX at The Writers Place.
An extension of the work presented a few months ago at Open Studios and a counterpoint to the work in the Artspace Flat File show, PIX will feature prints and works on paper furthering the exploration of Will’s Paintings series.
What’s the difference between reading and seeing? Why is it so much more difficult to drink with our friends while enjoying a text than doing the same with a painting? Is it possible to float around, in and out of writing leisurely like we do with images? Will Meier’s ‘paintings’ in PIX explore these questions and more, toying with the mind’s eye as a canvas, imagistic language as pigment, and the stark formal arrangement of block-justified Myriad Pro as a brush. They’re hung on a wall.
