RICHARD MEIER
Richard Meier Portrait

Richard Meier’s collages complement his architecture in various, unexpected ways. In sharp contrast to his architectural drawings, they are nonrepresentational. Yet in a manner similar to those drawings, they record the artist’s creative process. Like the architecture itself, this portfolio seeks to reconcile the antithetical conditions of random discord and ideal order. Richard's collages are complex, multi-faceted structures. The first time I saw the proposed portfolio I was struck by the powerful, visionary composition, one that introduced new relationships between color and medium, text and imagery, for each collage is dynamic and unique. Each piece tells a different story.
