Bernard Meyers: Urban Abstracts

Aug 12, 2022 – Oct 15, 2022

“Photograph something not for what it is but for what it can become.”

—Minor White

Bernard Meyers uses images collected on walks through urban environments to explore the intersections of photographic realism and abstract expressionism. These divergent worlds intertwine through the reorganization of space, interactions of color, and convergence of reality and imagination.

With a focus on form and design, he sees each work as a puzzle to be put together differently each time he begins to build an image. Current digital technologies allow Meyers to deconstruct a single image into pieces that can be arranged and rearranged into a myriad of possibilities to construct new images that blur the boundaries between photography and painting.
