Meyers composes constructions from found objects; incorporating drawings, collage and printmaking, turning these discarded items into monoliths and architectural curiosities. His large scale site-specific installations revive rejected objects such as windows, cardboard, boxes, and frames. Transforming their functionality, these objects now exist to house drawings and structurally support otherwise flat works.
His two dimensional work (drawings, collage and prints) all posses sculptural qualities with a strong attention to composition, perspective, texture, negative space and location. He uses ink, gouache, watercolor, graphite and collage to build lyrical amalgamations of figure and structure; drawing and collaging the human form into surreal architecture and minimal landscapes. There is a strong attention to how each object/figure reacts physically to its surroundings; relating back to his sculptural work and how the audience relates to his site-specific environments.
