Constructions / Bernard C. Meyers at Granary Arts

May 24 – August 11

Reception: Friday, May 26, 2023, 6-8 pm

Bernard C. Meyers’ imagery explores the intersections of photographic realism and abstract expressionism. These divergent worlds intertwine through the reorganization of space, the interactions of color, and a convergence of reality and imagination. The dismembered urban landscapes, in which humans often inhabit a zombie-like state, reads like a glitch or the chatter of broken signal—a fuzzy patchiness of information beaming back and forth between earth and orbiting satellites. 

Driven by form and design, modern technology and software allow Meyers to deconstruct a single image into a myriad of possibilities in which the constructed, built environment becomes a symphonic visual experience. Meyers walks the pallet knife’s edge between traditions of photography and painting. Throughout his career as an artist, his guiding premise—from Minor White—has always been, “Photograph something not for what it is, but for what it can become.”
