"I wished I too could join them soaring above the earth, sailing to a new land if only for a season," she says in her statement about the exhibition.
"Some beam flows through my body and I lose consciousness," she writes and I believe her.
The work of Meese develops from her senses and her moods. She does not plan it. Her gestural brushwork is evident in each painting and causes the viewer to linger.
This is a show not to miss. Visit the gallery, open Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday from 12 noon to 6 p.m.
