Using primarily aerosol, Australian artist Meggs paints figures that appear to be hurling through space. His thin paint strokes create an illusion of motion and we cannot seem to grasp the subjects’ entirety in our eyes’ focus. The feathery, gestural execution is rendered in hellish hues of black, gold and red, endowing Meggs’ airy style with a sense of gothic beauty. Meggs is spending the summer in San Francisco as he prepares for his solo show at White Walls, “Truth in Myths,” opening July 14 and he invited us into his temporary studio to take a look at some of his new works.
