About

Oil painting - figurative painting, impressionism

Looking at a Joshua Meyer painting means changing your mind about what
you see. Only gradually do you discern the figures in his work. They
emerge slowly, rewarding a second and third glance. Coming into
their own, they transform the color all around them. As living people
do, Meyer’s subjects reveal themselves and they disappear. Look at them up close and they scatter, self-effacing. Back away and they gather force and gravity. Back away a little further to give the figures space and they will appear to possess the room.

Artist Joshua Meyer is known for his thickly layered paintings of people, and for a searching, open-ended process. The Cambridge, Massachusetts, artist is the recipient of a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant as well as the Sustainable Arts Foundation Award, and a Painting Fellowship from the Massachusetts Cultural Council. He studied art at Yale University and The Bezalel Academy. The artist’s work has been shown in galleries and museums
across the United States, Europe and Asia, including a solo exhibition, "Tohu vaVohu" at Hebrew College in Boston, and "Becoming" at the Yale Slifka Center and NYU Bronfman Center in New York.
