Welcome Eric G. Thompson

December 5, 2018 - Kelly Carper

Meyer Gallery is proud to now be representing Salt Lake City artist Eric G. Thompson. Thompson’s contemporary realist landscape, figurative and still life compositions capture quiet moments of a simpler life from vacant rural landscapes to lonely weathered objects. His pieces capture the peaceful feeling of time spent alone or the emotional tug of fading memories. Thompson works in watercolor, oil and most distinctly, egg tempera. The latter is medium that has been used for centuries to create jewel-like artworks from an emulsion of pigment and egg yolk.


Jhenna Quinn Lewis: Haiku of Birds

November 30, 2018 - Kelly Skeen

“I find that poetry is synonymous with my style of composition and work,” says Lewis. “My paintings have always been simple, and I admire the simplicity of haiku style poetry.”


Douglas Fryer: Revisitations

November 8, 2018 - Kelly Skeen

“I want to express the idea that reality is more fluid. Though my eye and mind may focus on one thing in a scene, in reality all else is soft, interpenetrating in motion.”


Brad Price: Enchanted Expressions

October 18, 2018 - Kelly Skeen

Oklahoma painter Brad Price is similarly infatuated with New Mexico, particularly the northern region, which has been the focus of his work for the past three decades and is naturally the subject for his solo show, “Enchanted Expressions.” “It is the tortured beauty of the area,” he says when asked about his fascination with the southwest landscape. “When you look at the twisted pines, the crooked cottonwoods, the eroded landscape, you feel that it has survived through adversity. The whole place looks incredibly wise, like it knows more than you do, like it could tell you some amazing stories about pain and survival.”


Ricardo Fernandez Ortega: Equilibrium

October 3, 2018 - Kelly Skeen

Ortega’s provocative, eerie paintings balance classical techniques with surreal style, bridging connections between reality and our subconscious. His work can be interpreted in a myriad of ways as we allow our imagination to explore the otherworldly realms depicted in his paintings.


Jacob A. Pfeiffer : Best Medicine

September 7, 2018

With an underlying acknowledgement of our current political climate, Jacob Pfeiffer’s current work simply aims to “lighten the mood” through witty visual puns and humorous wordplay. The theme of his solo show is derived from the familiar idiom, “laughter is the best medicine,” and his paintings similarly illustrate quirky words or puzzling puns.


Robert LaDuke: Recollection

September 4, 2018 - Kelly Skeen

Robert LaDuke’s illustrative paintings have a nostalgic quality as his subject matter consists of vehicles, homes and fashions that reference earlier eras. His vintage portraits of idyllic, Rockwell-esque American lifestyles stem from personal memories and experiences, but are often layered with surreal visions.


Fatima Ronquillo: Arcadia

August 28, 2018 - Kelly Skeen

For this year’s solo show, Ronquillo has created a series of paintings that are set on the fabled island of Arcadia, which in ancient Greek mythologies was an unspoiled utopia representing idyllic happiness. Ronquillo’s overarching theme through this body of work is the search for Arcadia and that unreachable idea of a perfect society


Unexpected Delights: Step-by-Step Painting Demo by Fatima Ronquillo

August 24, 2018 - Fatima Ronquillo

"I myself never know what my paintings will look like in the end, trusting the process entirely. I like leaving something to chance and am content to begin with only an idea." - Fatima Ronquillo
