Phillip Maisel (b.1981, Chicago) received an MFA from California College of the Arts in 2013, and is a two-time recipient of the Yefim Cherkis Scholarship for Photographic Excellence. Maisel’s work is an exploration of visual perception, rooted in the language of photography. Maisel makes series of photographs of everyday materials, making adjustments between each frame by repositioning, introducing, or extracting elements. On the final printed image, Maisel reintroduces dimensionality to the flat picture plane by integrating collage elements or physical cuts into the surface. Presenting the works in grids and small groupings reveal the nuanced variations within each image. He has had solo exhibitions at Gregory Lind Gallery in San Francisco; Shulamit Nazarian in Los Angeles, and Document in Chicago. He has also exhibited at The William Benton Museum in Connecticut; The University of New Mexico in Taos; and DeCordova Museum in Massachusetts. Maisel lives and works in San Francisco.
