Extraordinarily rich and expressively rendered, Ilene Meyer's oil paintings wrap viewers in the mists and myths of creation, exploring fantastical creatures and imaginary landscapes with piercing clarity and passion. As surreal as Picasso or Dali, as evocative as Georgia O'Keeffe, this glossy gallery introduces sci-fi and New Age visualists to the first full-scale retrospective collection of Meyer's work. Invoking themes of ecology, conservation, culture, and civilization, Meyer's paintings pronounce that all existence is interconnected and that all souls are intertwined. Already a cultural sensation in Japan and the subject of numerous articles and interviews and a documentary film, Meyer is perfectly primed to enchant America with her bold, painterly style. This is the first collection of Ilene Meyer paintings to be published in the U.S.
