"The essence of John Meyer's art is the confirmation that we all have a sense of place in the world. Although his paintings draw on a South African realist tradition, his style is rooted more deeply in European and American representational art. Meyer's background as a master-illustrator enables him to present his subjects with an intense theatrical clarity. His technique combines realism with illusion, which has the effect of inviting the viewer into a world that is both strangely familiar yet unexplored." Taken from the book.
