A characteristic Melissa Meyer's work is subdivided into squarish compartments that read across and down, creating an effect of a quilted surface. The loose-knit seriality of her units is given variety through her hand as it wanders within each square and across, over and down. Thus Meyer’s sequential renewal of smaller areas of squiggles and blobs tied across the surface of the canvas create the effect of luminous netting that spans across each painting.
