A finished artwork from the “Sustained” series by Charlotte-based artist Chalice Meikle. There are luscious broad brushstrokes of cyan and yellow, mixed with a transparent purple layer seemingly poured onto the canvas and manipulated by gravity. Sometimes the process is where we can find stability rather than the end result.  

The first debut of this exhibition was held at Artisans Palate in NoDa of Charlotte, NC. Reception was on Saturday, February 3rd at 2024. Ms. Meikle was encouraged to add the figure to her work, and see what magic happens. This series currently hangs in the 'Indigo Gallery' at The VAPA Center. On display from April 1st to May 21st. 

THE FIGURE

A completed abstract artwork from the 'Wake Up' series by Chalice Meikle. This series is inspired by the artist's meditative experience outdoors. Chalice used various techniques and materials including flashe, acrylic paint, paint marker, brushes, nail polish, spatula, stencils, and spray paint. The artwork features layered hues and squiggles of traffic cone orange, lilac, sky blue, purple, grass green, and fire engine red with purple paint marker on top.

This series came about while meditating outside. During meditation, I was reacting to birds singing and making colors and lines behind my eyes. It was magical, and I did my best to replicate the experience.

This series was a bit impulsive, it was a trial and error that became its own series. The Wake Up series has roughly 50 sketches. While using the sketches as a reference, the paint application brought this sustained moment. The painting no longer needed work or paint, it was fine on its own. Sometimes the process is where we can find stability rather than the end result.

A finished artwork from the 'Sustained' series. This series emerged spontaneously, evolving from trial and error into its own distinct body of work. Drawing inspiration from sketches in the 'Wake Up' series, the paint application led to a moment of sustained perfection. The painting reached a state where no further work or paint was necessary; it stood complete on its own. The artwork showcases large paint splatters and swipes in lilac, blue, and neon yellow against a mostly white background, reflecting the stability found in the artistic process rather than the final outcome.

FIGURE IT OUT

This series is just that. While working on multiple paintings, and still trying to find my mark. This series started as a study and became the style I have wanted to create for quite some time.
