Trish Meyer refers to her artistic process as “collaborating with chance.” She enjoys exploring techniques where she is not in complete control, such as monotypes, splash ink, and encaustics.
“It may be that I am inspired by the unexpected because I spend my day creating computer graphics where pixels and words are formed with a great degree of control. When I want to pamper my right brain, I retreat to my art studio (which I’ve dubbed my ‘emotional oasis’).”
Trish finds inspiration in the apparently random yet purposeful patterns found in nature – butterfly wings, forests and rock formations. Despite her love of nature, technology does find ways to creep back into her work – but rarely used in ways that it was originally intended. Her new series of mixed media and encaustics incorporates digital imagery and reflects on the complex and often chaotic relationships introduced by modern forms of communication.
Born and raised in Ireland, Celtic themes and icons as well as remnants of Irish history also emerge in her work.
Trish Meyer enjoys exploring a wide range of experimental techniques and media including encaustic, watercolor, acrylic, calligraphy, book arts and printmaking (especially collagraphs and photopolymer gravure).
