Ilene Meyer is an internationally published artist who has received critical acclaim since the mid 80’s. She was born in Seattle, Washington. After studying painting and drawing technique, she made her debut in 1979 in solo gallery shows in Washington.
Extraordinarily rich and expressively rendered, Ilene Meyer's oil paintings and prints wrap viewers in the mists and myths of creation, exploring fantastical creatures and imaginary landscapes with piercing clarity and passion.
As surreal as Picasso or Dali, as evocative as Georgia O'Keeffe, this glossy gallery introduces sci - fi and New Age visualists to the first full - scale retrospective collection of Meyer's work. Invoking themes of ecology, conservation, culture, and civilization, Meyer's paintings pronounce that all existence is interconnected and that all souls are intertwined.
Based on her own imagination, boundless creativity, and precise detail, her paintings cover a wide variety of subjects both created and real: man, animals, plants, still life, and the universe, all encompassing science, philosophy and cultures fused with a profound understanding of the earth. She depicts her subjects in rich and clear colors encompassing a broad range of events on earth from past, present and future, inviting us into her imaginary world carrying message which vary according to the viewer.
Already a cultural sensation in Japan and the subject of numerous articles and interviews and a documentary film, Meyer is perfectly primed to enchant America with her bold, painterly style.
