While the natural world plays a profound role in Meyer’s work, he maintains a delicate balance in its portrayal between realism and abstraction. Within that world, water is the subject of inquiry – lakes, ponds, waterfalls, and often the plant life they contain. Both mysterious and revealing, the water’s surface reflects its surroundings and simultaneously offers a glimpse into a realm below. Enigmatic, distorted images of decomposing tree trunks emerge from the depths, while reeds, water lilies and grasses thrive above. These organic forms converge to form a dynamic ecosystem, nature’s cycle of life, death and regeneration.
