    2017 - MEYER Off the Beaten Track

    Off the Beaten Track


    Exhibition dates: 11 - 29 OCTOBER 2017
    Opening: Saturday 14th October, 5 - 7pm

    ARTIST STATEMENT
    Painting is my way of synthesizing my experiences. I can express in art things that I can't say in words. It's about an inexplicable drive to put it all down on a canvas until I arrive at a place where my understanding settles.

    Sue Meyer's work emerges instinctively and it is easy to be swept up in its fluidity and depth. Her works invite the viewer into an open, transformative world that speaks of both mystery and adventure. She has exhibited continuously in both solo and group exhibitions since 1997 and has been selected as a finalist in numerous competitions.

    Growing up immersed in the exotic sights and sounds of the East, Sue's artistic practice is imbued with unique influences that resist easy definition. She migrated to Australia at age 16 and attributes living in Sydney by the sea as her continuing inspiration combined with a lifetime absorbing the imprints of regular travel.

    The multiple layers of her work reflect memory, nostalgia, and an ever-changing physical and emotional environment. Her technique involves layering spontaneous markings and gestures on surfaces scraped and scratched. Using mixed media including acrylics, ink, and charcoal, she creates metaphorical images and luminescent abstractions. Past and present together with the ever-fleeting moment weave harmoniously into new perspectives and possibilities.

    Contemporary Australian artists Pam Cowper, Elizabeth Cummings, and Jenny Sages have been amongst Sue's most inspirational teachers, leaving profound influences on her artistic development.
