ALSO our gallery walk on March 21, the second Artists' Talk was with Melissa Meyer at Lennon Weinberg
I was reacquainted with MEYER at the exhibition having been to her studio many years ago when she was an emerging artist. It was great speaking to her about how she makes her paintings. I knew that the paintings are worked flat on the floor, and MEYER moves around the canvas with her brushes and colors and does what she called a "little dance" working spontaneously from the inside out creating strokes with the motion of her body.
I have always admired her spectacular use of color and her style of lyrical abstract painting. Her work is now in many private, corporate and museum collections.
