I’m a huge fan of Meryl Pataky. Her creative eye is brilliant – she crafts work that revolves around elements on the periodic table. Cultivating a creative atmosphere that is centered around her concept of universal connectedness, it was enthralling to visit her San Francisco-based studio. Originating from South Florida, Meryl moved here in 2002 and attended the Academy of Art University. What ensued in the past twelve years is a portfolio that has the ability to drop jaws and inspire endlessly.
Her studio is mysterious to me, with countless tools adorning the walls and beautiful art pieces everywhere. I felt as if I had slipped into another dimension, one where creation trumps all. I have always believed an art studio should be a conglomeration of one’s creative interests – from building bikes, to writing, to creating pieces of art, a proper studio should encompass it all. Perhaps this is why I felt at home in Pataky’s workspace – it was a true creative hideaway.
Pairing technical expertise with her artistic musings, Meryl Pataky is dominating the San Francisco art scene. Currently on her radar is preparation work for a show at Spoke Art and Modern Eden – two San Francisco galleries with exhibition dates of January 2015. More from Meryl Pataky here.
