Kyle Meyer, born 1985 in Ashland, Ohio, Currently Living and working in New York, he completed a Bachelor of Arts in photography and graphic design from City College in New York and MFA in photography from Parsons New School of Design, New York. In 2009 Kyle was awarded the Mortimer B. Hayes- Brandeis Travelling Fellowship which led him to Swaziland where he learned the art of weaving which he now combines with photography in his work. By weaving together photographic and sculptural elements, his artwork metaphorically speaks to the human condition of seclusion, oppression, memory, and loss. It also laboriously questions the potency of digital photography by embracing the haptic qualities of craft. Meyer’s Selected solo exhibitions include When will I see you again?, Kristin Hjellegjerde Gallery London (2020), Interwoven, Yossi Milo Gallery, New York (2018); “Be-Longing”, Blank Space Gallery: New York, New York (2014).
