Annie Meyer is a painter but primarily creates monotype prints, achieving each unique work of art through the application of multiple thin layers of color on plexiglass, which are then transferred onto the piece with her press. “My monotypes are my signature works at this point of my life. My subjects [are] the human figure and contemporary landscapes.
I have been drawing the figure since high school, and I work directly from a live model,” says Meyer. She creates landscapes as well, which she explains depict specific places but use minimal colors and shapes, focusing more on emotion than factual content.
This year, Meyer is working on two separate bodies of monotypes: “one that focuses on the upper Wisconsin (Lake Superior and Madeline Island), and the other on Sauvie Island in Oregon, which is 10 miles from Portland.” Meyer makes and sells commissioned artwork from her gallery, Annie Meyer Gallery, in Portland. She is also represented in the same city by Laura Vincent Design & Gallery, which is where she will have her exhibition Sauvie Island By My Home from July 1 to August 28. In addition, she will be exhibiting her body of work focused on Madeline Island and Lake Superior at the University of Portland in January 2021. —
