Geoffrey Meredith

ARTIST’S STATEMENT

Geoffrey Meredith begins his creative process with a plein air study of the scene he seeks to depict. He considers his paintings abstract due to their texture and one-dimensionality yet his work simultaneously represents familiar urban scenes and landscapes. Meredith associates his style with the Impressionists of the 19th century and the artists of the Bay Area figurative movement of the 1950s, such as Richard Diebenkorn.

He received his BA in Art History from Princeton and his MBA from Stanford and pursued an advertising career for thirty years.
