”Second Course: Laurie Meyer Solo Exhibition”
May 4 – 31, 2018
Meyer Vogl Gallery
Charleston, South Carolina
From the gallery:
Think of the energy of a restaurant kitchen — its beautiful dance of organized chaos and passion. Artist Laurie Meyer is emboldened and excited by that energy, and for her upcoming solo exhibition, she’s bringing it to the canvas with a series of kitchen-inspired paintings.
Meyer, who co-owns Meyer Vogl Gallery, says, “By selecting a kitchen scene for a painting, I am assured a figurative piece full of gesture and energy. The glow of the warm lights and the neutrals of the stainless steel offer incredible colors as well. I love a traditional chef in white with warm lights, surrounded by the coolness of the restaurant kitchen interiors. There are many stories implied by the interior of a restaurant!”
“If you have been to Italy, and better still, if you have been to the island of Ischia, you connect easily with the chefs,” Meyer says. “The two in Limone e Lime prepared the finest authentic dishes each day at the Castillo Aragonese, and we loved them.”
Works include the interiors of Charleston restaurants and kitchens, culinary memories from recent travels abroad, as well as scenes from her own kitchen.
