Maureen Meyer

by Grace Bonney

I love discovering that an artist I admire lives right around the corner from me. After discovering that I basically share a bedroom wall with the amazing Faile Studio yesterday, I also found out that artist Maureen Meyer is a fellow Greenpointer. Originally from Germany, Maureen now calls Brooklyn home. Inspired by her background in fashion and textile design, Maureen creates beautiful paintings remind me of the incredible indigo dyeing we’ve been seeing in textiles for the past year or so. I love indigo in just about any form, but these paintings feel especially stunning to me. They capture all the color of the fabric with a bit more weight. You can check out more of Maureen’s work right here online. Fingers crossed I’ll bump into her transporting one of these around the neighborhood one day…xo, grace
