Inside Out (Australia)

Meg Walters

-

How would you describe your art? It’s mainly landscape driven, but from an autobiogra­phical standpoint. Meaning, I paint my own memories of places. This usually ends up being slightly abstracted landscapes with vivid colours and expressive brush marks. My paintings allude to a real place, but they primarily exist within the realm of memory. Where do you find inspiratio­n? Absolutely everywhere: politics, nature, psychology, history, meditation, motherhood, travel, the list could go on forever. The more I fill up my life with experience­s, the more inspired I am. While it was limiting, 2020 was really rich with experience and transforma­tion, so there really is never a shortage of ideas if you are open to it. Do you take commission­s? When I’m not busy working on an upcoming exhibition, yes! Where can we find your work? I have works available through Otomys Contempora­ry in Australia and the UK, and Michael Reid Studio Direct in Sydney as well as Michael Reid Berlin. What is the price range for your art? Most pieces are $750–$3000. megwalters.com; @megwalters­world
