FROM THE ARTIST'S STUDIO
In 2014, Peter Frank wrote the following about Melissa Meyer in the Huffington Post: “Each painting or watercolor challenges Meyer to compose something that works a little differently while revealing the DNA they all share. That DNA is itself mixed, two parts abstract expressionism to one part prewar geometricism and one-and-a-half part Zen calligraphy…Every line has a flourish to it, but Meyer turns that energy back in on itself, so that the line conserves rather than spends its energy…Indeed, there is something quite overtly musical about these, not least in the way they work top to bottom and back and forth equally and in concert.”

Melissa Meyer's work is strongly influenced by color and line. Her brushstrokes and patterns possess a glyph-like quality, conveying a vibrant and deeply personal aesthetic language. She has created a diverse oeuvre that includes oil paintings, drawings, watercolors, prints and large-scale public commissions. Meyer masters a range of different printing techniques, including lithography, etching, monotype, silkscreen, and spit bite aquatint. To create her unique monotypes she paints on acetate sheets with watercolors, running the sheets through a press, often transferring multiple layers onto paper to complete the final image. This work is part of the Love Me Do series, printed by Anthony Kirk at the Center for Contemporary Printmaking in 2010. The series is named after the Beatles’ song. Because they are monotypes, each work is unique and an original.
