Joshua Meyer

Oil Paintings

Since studying art at Yale University and the Bezalel Academy in Jerusalem, Joshua Meyer’s figure paintings have lingered between order and chaos. One of the delights of his work is the transformation of the physical material of paint into seemingly living breathing figures inhabiting an interior life. His energetic swipes of paint are layered with a palette knife and reveals the artistic process while involving the viewer in each artistic decision along the way. Born in Lubbock, Texas, Meyer is now based in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Meyer has been recognized with a Pollock-Krasner Fellowship (2008), a Massachusetts Cultural Council Painting Fellowship (2010), and The Sustainable Arts Foundation Award (2011).
