A finished artwork titled 'Figure it Out 4 of 50', created by Chalice Meikle. This piece is part of a series conceived while the artist explored various paintings, aiming to discover her signature style. Executed in mixed media on panel, the artwork measures 32" x 40" and was created in 2023. It features vibrant shades of lime green, goldenrod orange, sunshine yellow, bubblegum pink, and dark blue.
Chalice Meikle, the artist, gazes confidently at the camera. Her short hair and glasses frame her face, accentuated by a pendant necklace. She wears a vibrant red ensemble designed by local artist CHDWCK!, consisting of matching top and pants. Balancing on one leg, she crosses the other over, and rest both arms on the crossed leg, exuding bold and self-assured style.


Art is that moment of balanced meditation. Without creation, there is no life or breath. Ms. Meikle recieved her BFA in painting from SCAD in 2015. Other genres she works include sculpture, poetry, printmaking, photography, and dance. Her painting styles are predominantly abstract, contemporary, or highly conceptual expressive pieces. Creating gave her voice purpose and meaning. Ms. Meikle intends to spread this knowledge of self-worth. 


Artist Statement
A dynamic shot captures the artist's right hand in motion, wielding a large, chunky house paintbrush. Streaks of thin aqua blue paint are flung across the canvas and into the air, adding to the work in progress. Swatches of blue and black paint, along with straight black sketched lines, already adorn the mixed media canvas, showcasing the evolving artwork's layers and textures.
