BiographyMeredith Rosier creates drawings that reflect her examination of the interaction between exactitude and vagueness. So to sustain the apprehension of the picture plane and to slow the process of categorical recognition, she courts the dialogue of abstraction. Rosier has studied drawing at Yale University School of Art and was awarded a full scholarship for the Masters of Fine Arts Degree from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, Philadelphia. Her drawings reside in museum collections such as the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts Museum, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Weatherspoon Art Museum, Greensboro, North Carolina; Arkansas Museum of Art, Little Rock, Arkansas.
