His camera is his weapon, capturing images during late night chases and races. Through the camera lens he finds compelling angles that are pushed and worked into his abstract vision.
Later in the studio, he holds hostage those images with a palette knife, brush and tape, creating a memory of excitement and freedom, while piecing together photo’s of visited memories. Meyer captures movement and depth while keeping a strong perspective and perceived vanishing point.
Multiple layers of paint seem to reveal the same for the layers of urban life. The grit of the sidewalk, the light down the street, seen and then forgotten only somehow repeat themselves again as we look beyond the streets.
With this journey, he pushes and defines his unique style. Meyer continues to paint at his home studio in Marin County.
