“Truths are illusions of which one has forgotten that they are illusions.” – Nietzsche
The tradition of painting can incorporate a moving narrative. John Meyer’s art explores the divide between realism and illusion. His style is firmly rooted in the broad traditions of Western representational art, yet his characters are fictional.
Like a skilled novelist he uses the imaginary narrative to higlight an intense psychological realism that speaks of intimacy and distance. Meyer’s fascination with the notion of the public and the private has led to the development of a narrative genre which fuses his craftsmanship as a leading portrait painter with the compositional discipline evident in his earlier landscapes. This book is about the development of the sequential narratives.
