CURRENT AND UPCOMING EXHIBITIONS
June 9 - July 30, 2017
Figureworks is pleased to showcase Meridith McNeal’s latest series Inside/Outside: Windowphilia. This fascinating work explores hidden and complex layers connected with daily reflections. Created with the fluidity of ink and watercolor, these altered perspectives are inviting and engaging.
Lisa Peet, Associate News Editor at Library Journal, reviewed the exhibition:
Windows, in particular, invite a multiplicity of meanings. Add a reflective surface, so light can work its magic, and you bring a sort of graceful confusion: what is on one side can coexist with what is on the other, the space behind and before the viewer overlaid. Where you have been shows itself side by side with where you are, or where you may yet be going.
Meridith McNeal’s work brings that particular magic into play elegantly. Her precisely composed paintings offer a series of images that explore what it is to be on one side or another—or one side and another. It can be done, and McNeal’s paintings show us how.
