Phillip Maisel

Maisel’s work is an exploration of visual perception, rooted in the language of photography. MaiseI creates arrangements of everyday materials in his studio, which he then photographs in iterative sequences. The resulting images become bases for drawing, cutting, and collaging upon as a way to explore perceptual ambiguity and engage with the dimensionality of photographic space.


Phillip Maisel holds an MFA from California College of the Arts. He has had solo exhibitions at Gregory Lind Gallery in San Francisco; Shulamit Nazarian in Los Angeles, and Document in Chicago. He is a Charter Artist at Minnesota Street Project.
