Maureen Meyer (b. 1976, Nuremberg, Germany) received her degree in graphic design from the Pennsylvania State University in 1997. She has held design positions at Calvin Klein, Visionaire / V Magazine and cofounded the women’s clothing line Flowers of Romance in 2005. Her career in fashion and textile design has been an influence in her paintings. While studying at the Women’s Studio Workshop (Rosendale, NY) in 2007, Maureen’s relationship and experimentation with indigo dye began. Her work has been shown with Young Space at Standard Projects (Hortonville, WI), Alfa Gallery (Miami, FL), The Painting Center (New York, NY), Chesterfield Gallery (New York, NY), The Wassaic Project (Wassaic, NY) and NURTUREart (New York, NY). Maureen won the Art Slant prize where her work was shown at Aqua Art (Miami, FL) and has been featured in ArtMaze magazine. She lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.

Maureen Meyer is a painter inspired by her background in fashion and textile design.  Her process begins with fabric experimentations using indigo dye.  She combines various resist dye techniques, including stitching and clamping to create unexpected patterns on the materials.  Meyer references this process rooted in craft to create the abstract compositions in her paintings.  The rich indigo color is achieved by painting multiple layers of indigo pigment mixed with an acrylic polymer.  The realized paintings are intricate interpretations of the dyed fabrics, exploring their luminous and organic qualities.
