Water is the theme of recent paintings by Matthias Meyer, but do not expect to drown in shades of blue. Meyer presents the various watery eco-systems that offer the colours of the grasses, roots and wrecks that live above and below the surface. Equally watery is Meyer’s technique, where he dilutes the oil paint so that it can run across the canvas. A watercolour effect is achieved through the use of a wet-on-wet approach.
