“The originality of Jerry Meyer’s Memory Boxes begins with the artist’s drive to create an art of personal search in which not only the imagery but also formal components (such as composition and illumination) and the fine craft of construction reside together as expressive elements. Made of the artist’s genuine emotional connections and associations to objects, and his extreme sensitivity to the poetics of lighting conditions, the Memory Boxes have an impact similar to really good theater: powerful feelings personally generated and relevant to us that are clarified and given force of impact by staging devices.”
