About

The constraints of the rectangle are central to Meg Atkinson’s thinking. It is for this reason that each of her paintings begins as a grid. In response to the grid and to create tension she draws organic shapes and sometimes scenes. The elation felt when finishing a painting is like no other. It has to do with the fact that while she is identifying for each painting its essential visual problem she is also at the same time solving it. A finished painting expresses duality. It bridges the gap between intellect and imagination. Meg Atkinson is an artist and art educator who lives in New York City. She received her BFA from Pratt Institute in 1984, and her MFA from CUNY, Queens College, in 1991. Meg has exhibited in New York City and the tri-state area, including shows at Cooler Gallery, Morgan Lehman Gallery, Geoffrey Young Gallery, Storefront Ten Eyck, ODETTA, Noyes Museum of Art, and Curious Matter. Meg has also contributed to the blog, Painters on Paintings, and has had fiction published in BookCourt's literary magazine, Cousin Corinne's Reminder. Meg lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
