“Allowing myself to make art has been one of the most terrifying, rewarding and authentic things I have ever done."
“Visually, we experience the world in terms of shapes and their relationships - those of color, scale, proximity, etc. My work is an evolving attempt to recreate life situations. Using randomly clipped shapes, I start from a place of disorder and set about solving the problems that exist within the composition. By adhering to an underlying grid, I am always considering where the eye goes, where the weight sits. Ideally, I am able to find a place where all the elements can co-exist; this balance lends an overall sense of calm and order to the chaos. For me, this process is akin to meditation.” - Maureen Meyer

About Maureen Meyer
Maureen Meyer is a Los Angeles based visual artist, working primarily in mixed media. After graduating from design school in 2003, she spent 12 years in New York as a graphic designer, developing an expertise in visual concepting and publishing. Upon relocating to Los Angeles, Meyer shifted her focus to fine art. Drawn to stories and rituals of the past, Meyer became fascinated by the rich patina and worn colors of archival papers and discarded print materials. With a background in typography and visual storytelling, she gradually developed a vocabulary of familiar forms and everyday objects using found materials magazines, office or scrap paper, and print materials, some dating as far back to the 1920s. Through her delicately balanced compositions, Meyer seeks to create new stories through vehicles of the past.
