Jin Meyerson carries on the legacy of abstract painting by distorting, expanding and reducing, and reinterpreting images from the media into the language of painting. Based on the randomly selected images of crowds, nature, and machines, the artist reinterprets his surroundings into paintings with his own images and uncanny color schemes. In terms of structure, Meyerson’s image selection process is random and unplanned, unlike many painters whose works are based on digital images. The original images which he uses as the base of the farraginous form to create a collage are found primarily through online search. 

Meyerson, who sustains the practice of studio painting, proposes an unorthodox window to the recent history of cultural evolution. He operates a traditional art studio where the artist himself and his assistants work on sketches, silhouettes, and textures laterally and later adds delicate details vertically. Meyerson’s work advocates the idea of the role of composition and explication through the process of conceptualizing and executing. His work does not reflect the mechanical narration, which is simply selecting images and producing those images into paintings. His work’s base is on the sketches, but since he executes the process of repainting and rearranging the originals, his work’s composition alters rapidly over time. 

Born in Incheon, Korea in 1972, Jin Meyerson is an American artist currently based in Hong Kong after spending time working in New York, Paris, and Seoul. He received his BFA from Minneapolis College of Art and Design in 1995 and his MFA from Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in 1997. Meyerson is recognized for his contributions to the renaissance of representational art; and he participated in The Triumph of Painting at Saatchi Gallery, London, and Hue & Cry, curated by Vladimir Roitfeld. In 2013, Meyerson had a solo exhibition at Hakgojae Gallery. His works are part of Guggenheim, Saatchi Gallery, and Philadelphia Museum of Art’s public collection.
