Matthias Meyer. Gläserner Tag (Glassy Day), Kunstmuseum Mülheim an der Ruhr, July 2 – September 10, 2017

The Kunstmuseum Mülheim an der Ruhr dedicates the first museum exhibition to the painter Matthias Meyer (*1969) who studied with Gerhard Richter at Kunstakademie Düsseldorf and at the prestigious Chelsea College of Arts in London. His large-scale paintings – in which views of landscapes, impressions of nature and interior spaces are intertwined from different perspectives – first brought Meyer to public attention. By using a special wet-in-wet technique, whose defining characteristic is that the heavily diluted oil colours blend, blur and create layers, Meyer has found an equivalent on form and dissolution, figuration and abstraction in his paintings. Transparency and thus resulting depths are the central themes in his Oeuvre.
The exhibition is accompagnied by a catalogue published by Verlag Kettler, Dortmund. A limited edition with original mylar sketches by Matthias Meyer can be purchased at the museum shop. Preview Museum
