Biography

Working across mediums—including painting, performance, printmaking, and sculpture—Kerry Vander Meer explores the natural world. Exploding with color and imagery, Vander Meer’s works fuse abstraction with figuration, floral and biomorphic forms with idiosyncratic symbols and geometry. She began her career with a limited color palette in order to focus on the expressiveness of form; however, she now asserts that “there are not enough colors to work with,” and accordingly her compositions abound in warm, complementary hues. Though celebratory, Vander Meer’s oeuvre deals with serious issues—of environmental degradation, or the loss of identity in a media-saturated society. “I look through, around, or underneath an organized clutter of visual information,” she says. “Hopefully underneath that clutter exists a larger space of calm.”
