“Street of Dreams” is a quote referencing to Broadway in New York City as a place of hopes and elusive dreams and an interesting metaphor for the momentary and enigmatic quality of Life and our place in it. The ‘Street of Dreams” is a conceptual exhibition alluding to what we may perceive and how we may interpret it. The show contains paintings traditionally painted with words or text that become additional paintings within the paintings.

Meyers intentionally suggests that the illusion of the images he painted lie within the viewer or their active participation there of. The social, political and art historic references move throughout his works. Is this an exhibition of social commentary or an artist’s statement about Life and art world in the 21st century? Examining the paintings will be the key.

Will it be “Revolution” that moves them or merely the suggestion to lead them to another painting? Is the painting “This is a Picture … I am Sure” merely referencing what art is or is it alluding more profoundly to Rene Descartes “I think therefore I am”?

It will be up to the viewer and their participation within these ideas to decide how this show will appear to them. A “Street of Dreams” in other words.
