b. Tarrytown, NY. Lives and works in Chicago, IL.
Producing work that is sensuous, slightly frightening, and grotesquely humorous has become a means to engage discomfort and anger with situations that cannot be changed. Life’s frustrations, joys, and fears are embedded into Ms. Meier’s abstract sculptures, drawings, and installations through provocative use of materials including: pantyhose, spandex, porcelain, and found home furnishings.
Hand-sewn wearable soft sculptures constructed from donated and thrifted textiles.
Acts of touching have been extremely compromised during the pandemic. Yearning for Warm & Fuzzy addresses feelings of comfort and discomfort through the use of physi cal materials fabricated into wearable soft sculpture. Lines are blurred between art and fashion, enticing the viewer to analyze the work on the wall as sculpture, and wear the
work, becoming part of the sculpture, then returning the work to the wall in their own unique configuration. Viewers are encouraged to take selfies wearing and playing with these awkward quilted boas, answering the question: “what makes you feel warm and fuzzy?” posting to #yearningforwarmandfuzzy on Instagram with their insights.
