Even Cowgirls Go Bankrupt
Practicing art from a young age, Meredith has most recently begun exploring the deconstruction of musings that mark us as human. Meredith pieces together illustrations and words on canvas, purposely challenging the boundaries of "fine art," which often disqualifies the two from the category of raw expression. Pulling from interests in comics and poetry, Meredith has been using canvases as panels that can communicate together, or stand alone, to form a stream of consciousness commentary about handling the idea of chaos. A form of catharsis that is uniquely human, these mental timestamps are formed from the words, images, and panels. Her evoked mood pairs well with the exploration of both the cowboy and the wild frontier, which both serve as symbols of uncertainty. Her folk art approach serves as a palatable approach to overwhelming and universal concepts.
