“I seek to access universal concepts in a meditative state melding figuration, intuition, and my understanding of ritual, with a reverence for materials as the basis of my visual language. Rituals explore universal life truths, distilling a myriad of experience into a beautifully choreographed dance. Our collective connections are evident within these explosive celebrations of universal truths.”

Kristin Meyers is an interdisciplinary artist who weaves ritual practice with non-traditional materials to explore energies. Meyers was raised in Chicago and New York City, and studied at Parsons School of Design and The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Meyers has exhibited in the US and internationally at venues including Arte Americas, Miami, FL; the Contemporary Arts Center, New Orleans; and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, New Orleans. Past residencies include AIR Vallauris and Lorenzo Di Medici. Her works are held in private collections in the US and internationally. Her recently completed public installations include Sanctity, a Satellite Project of Prospect.4 New Orleans, and projects in Rome, Italy, and Vallauris, France. Meyers currently lives and works in New Orleans and Miami.
