About Joshua Meyer

Artist Joshua Meyer is known for his thickly layered paintings of people, and for a searching, open-ended process. The San Francisco Chronicle proclaimed these paintings “Stunning,” explaining that “Much like Meyer’s complex layers of paint, contra­dictory ideas and emotions accu­mulate on his canvases, and the resulting tension is connected to the process of struggling, searching, getting lost and re-emerging.”

According to the Boston Globe, “These aren’t so much portraits as they are depictions of intimacy.” Meyer has been recognized with a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant, a CJP Arts and Culture Impact Award, The Sustainable Arts Foundation Award, and twice with the Massachusetts Cultural Council’s Painting Fellowship. The Cambridge, Massachusetts artist studied art at Yale University and The Bezalel Academy, and has exhibited in galleries and museums internationally, including Eight Approaches at Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts and the Worcester Art Museum, Tohu vaVohu at Hebrew College, and Becoming at the Yale Slifka Center and NYU Bronfman Center and the retrospective Seek My Face at UCLA’s Dortort Center. Meyer is represented by Rice Polak Gallery in Provincetown and Dolby Chadwick Gallery in San Francisco.  Read more>
