Maya Lin's Three Ways of Looking at the Earth at the Pace Wildenstein gallery hosted three of the artist's conceptual, systematic explorations of landscapes. The artist, known for monumental and earthworks, created landscapes that would transform viewers’ perspectives about the land and the sea by inviting them to navigate around, through and under these site-related installations. In 2x4 Landscape, Lin used 50,000 individually cut pieces of wood to create a pixelated landscape, reminiscent of architecture. Maya Lin’s work aims to reveal something new and startling about the planet we inhabit. The artist also hopes to bring attention to the physical relationship we have with the natural environment.
