In my Art you will find me, in yourself you will know me.
Artist Scott Meier in his studio
Reality is not as it appears. There is a oneness and unity to all, a perfection appearing as forms and objects. How can one paint this? With hints, love, and a smile.
Scott Meier received his BFA in Illustration from the University of Hartford. Scott later took a workshop with portrait artist Daniel Greene. Having done book cover illustrations, Scott turned to portraiture and did portrait commissions across the country. Scott came of age in art at a time when figure art, and representational art in general, was in a decline. Traditional realism was not being taught. Scott was determined to learn how to paint like the art masters before him. He pursued his own course, going against the grain of abstract and conceptual art. Scott took it upon himself to learn all he could on his own; to study, experiment, and push himself. “I was both teacher and student” he recalls. Through hard work and consistent self study Scott taught himself how to paint representational figurative art. Scott works from his studio in Central Pennsylvania and has taught figure drawing at the Art Association of Harrisburg and the Carlisle Arts Learning Center and has given portrait painting demonstrations for various art groups.
More and more I find myself looking inward; for inspiration, for answers, and to find myself. This is expressing itself as letting go of the need or desire to leave the studio. I find myself staying home more and more, painting as meditation. Am I becoming a hermit? Maybe. I don't feel like I'm missing out on the world but rather gaining it. I welcome visitors to the studio and would be glad to chat and talk art. I rarely venture out but do connect through writting letters by hand, the old fashion way. (If you'd like to receive letters send me an email). I am my art. In my art you will find me, in yourself you will know me.
