Nan Meyer

Herbert Palmer Gallery

At the Herbert Palmer Gallery, Nan Meyer exhibits in her first one man show in Los Angeles. Using acrylic on transparent vinyl, she has painted her way “through the looking glass.” Her style is Expressionistic, but the great charm of her work lies in her exploration and discovery of this new medium. Her painting of a young girl, No. 9, offers a double floating image with two transparencies superimposed upon one another, and this, her latest painting, is also reversible and the most interesting of the entire series. The shadows cast by the painted images on the wall behind the images themselves add to the total effect of her work, which is both joyous and exuberant in feeling.
