Christine Meytras

The attraction for anything artistic started at an early age. I was fortunate to go to schools where art was an important part of their curriculum. I studied drawing in high school, was accepted at the Beaux Arts school of Grenoble in France and obtained a “Maîtrise” in Art History from Grenoble’s University (the equivalent of a master’s degree.)
I moved to Jackson in the summer of 1995.

Aerial: Land Patterns

The irrigation patterns seen from the sky reveal an esthetic beyond the necessity of growing crops to feed people. They become food for hearts and souls.

I saw a solitary male in Yellowstone National Park rubbing its neck against a tree. It looked powerful, fierce, determined . To show its roughness and wildness I used rough material like sand paper, wasps nest, coconut tree bark, pieces of sisal cord.I printed pictures I had taken of birds against a spillway of rushing water at the dam on the Snake river, water and pebbles in the Gros Ventre river and inverted sky and water. A sky of water, a river of clouds, both elements that surround a Buffalo
