MELISSA MEIER: NATURE’S MASQUERADE

Melissa Meier’s work confronts social and spiritual issues by incorporating mixed media sculpture into narrative assemblage. She is constantly working with new processes and structure. Meier’s latest work entitled “Skins” furthers female portraiture, this time using natural elements such as leaves, feathers, stones, egg shells, pinecones, sticks, sponges, sea shells, scales and fur. Tribal ritual or the future of fashion, the “Skins” series asks the question: is there a difference?

Meier received her B.A. in Illustration from the Art Center College of Design in Pasagena, CA in 1991. Her work has been exhibited in New York, NY; Boston, MA; Los Angeles, CA; and Sao Paulo, Brazil. Her work was chosen by Sotheby’s for their Young International Artists group show and auction in Tel Aviv, Israel; Vienna, Austria; and Chicago, IL. In 2023, Meier’s solo show Becoming Nature was exhibited at The Oceanside Museum of Art in Oceanside, CA. Meier currently resides in Santa Monica, CA and continues to travel the world.
