Richard Meyer works in multiple layers and textures to uncover personal and social histories in paintings that suggest graffitied and postered urban walls, the present on top of past history. His urban scenes intermingle social realism with subtle religious motifs to evoke the spiritual in everyday life. Some of his images depict a pageant of humanity and social relationships, finding whatever communion the world allows. Others are a world where people are absent and their works decay and allow nature to heal from human ravages.
Richard Meyer was born in 1953 and lives in New York City. His work focuses on the marginal figures of city life, their personal and collective traumas, and the hope for regeneration. As a teacher, he has taught art and theater to people with disabilities.
