Paintings, Drawings, Perceptions
Edited by Cathy Fenner and Arnie Fenner
Signed & numbered, 500.
This is the first full-scale retrospective of Ilene Meyer’s rich and expressive oil paintings–fantastical creatures and mythical landscapes in a beautifully rendered combination of the realistic and the surreal.
Her work invokes themes of ecology, conservation, and lost civilizations, and recalls the surreal and technically brilliant work of Gil Bruvel and Daniel Merriam. "I find her imagination to be unique and astounding–it opens new ways of seeing. And as an artist and colorist, she captures an ‘acid-like’ clarity and brilliance that I rarely see in fantasy illustration. Today Ilene Meyer, strictly a fine artist is incredibly popular in Japan, where a documentary on her was produced." –Bud Plant
