This event has ended.

Melissa Meyer selected this quotation for Just Painting: 12 Quotes, 12 Watercolors, a catalog that documents a book of large watercolor spreads (on view at BravinLee Programs through November 24). The quote speaks to the nature of Melissa Meyer’s process, about which she herself recently wrote: My plan is to continue painting and to continue building on past work, current interests, influences and experiences. The ten new paintings and two watercolors in the exhibition bear out this description of her intent. The central ingredients of the recent work are essentially unchanged but are in a state of constant invigoration and renewal. Calligraphic glyphs, knots and skeins of gesture are laid over loosely gridded fields of background color in interpenetrating layers. Meyer’s precise control of hue, clarity, saturation, brightness, contrast, transparency and opacity, and the way she corrals these different aspects of color into highly individual works is impressive.
