Sharon Butler reviews Melissa Meyer: New Work at Lennon, Weinberg, New York, on view through May 7, 2016.

Butler notes: "My favorite piece in this absorbing show is a small diptych called Double Nature. ... The symbols themselves seem less tidy than those in earlier work, with one thin, dark, elongated zigzag mark on the left panel drawing my attention. It resembles the type of angular mark that might be made on a computer in Illustrator with the pen tool. Embracing digital tools to make drawings for the Art in Embassies project has clearly spilled over into Meyer's painting, prompting adventurous experimentation."
