Description

"Merz’s most striking pictorial technique involves layering combinations of graphite, wax, pastel, and paint that is brushed or sprayed, or sometimes both, onto paper, metal, board, or unstretched canvas. Colors shared by different mediums make it hard, at times, to know which material you see...Merz’s mixed methods draw you into the process of the work, as if your gaze were helping to generate it. First impressions of insouciantly woozy execution disintegrate in registrations of texture and touch. The pictures are like factories turning out dreams."

Peter Schjeldahl, "Marisa Merz’s Factory of Dreams," The New Yorker, 22 January 2017
