Art of Richard Meyer

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.
