About The ArtistMeredith Moles is a visual artist interested in perception, space, and location. Meredith’s current work features urban sketches in watercolor and ink, and paintings in gouache and casein. Her stairway series follows the tradition of David Hockney in exploring how to express the perceived, four-dimensional environment on a two-dimensional surface. Much of her work explores the joys of life in the San Francisco Bay Area, with its hills, parks, coffee shops, breweries, and quirky/charming/gritty/fascinating neighborhoods. A sense of playfulness and fun runs through her work.
About The ArtworkHundreds of stairways lead up and down the hills of the Bay Area. Meredith Moles’s paintings travel along these paths, carving them out with angles, curves, light and shadow, and warm, happy colors. The series combines her delight in the playfulness of stairways with the simple love of the Bay Area’s neighborhoods and hills. In the spirit of Picasso and David Hockney, these works explore how to paint the journey of a city walk. They show a stairway not as if the viewer were staring at it from one point—an artificial view—but as we experience it: walking up the path, looking left and right, glancing back down; taking in the broad view, and admiring each petal on a flower.
