Nancy Margolis Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of Jackie Meier’s inaugural exhibition Razzmatazz. Opulent color and dynamic line define Meier’s oil paintings. The artist transforms several of her canvases into kaleidoscopic twists of energy radiating from a center core.
Others become puzzles of overlapping planes of color, some fractured and geometric, and some more fluid and organic. Meier paints exclusively on square canvases, which function either as single paintings or as parts of larger compositions consisting of multiple panels, as in the nine-panel painting Belgium Fence (2012, see top photo), the largest in the exhibition.
Razzmatazz is a transformative body of work in its in scale, complexity, and exuberance, and signals the maturation of Jackie Meier’s journey, which has gathered an impressive momentum.
Razzmatazz By Jackie Meier will be on Exhibit through May 4th, 2013, at Nancy Margolis Gallery, Located at 523 W 25th St. New York NY 10001. Gallery Hours are Tuesday – Saturday 10: 00 AM – 6:00 PM.
