Nat Meade uses his work to reflect on the complex feelings that surround the experience of moving through different phases of life. The figures in his paintings become stand-ins for himself in his investigation of the experience of becoming an adult, husband and parent, each character viewed through the dual lens of self-scrutiny and societal expectation, according to James Castle House in Boise, Idaho, where Meade will have a 10-week residency in summer 2021.
Meade has exhibited his work in solo and group exhibitions nationally and internationally, and he has an upcoming solo exhibition at L21 Gallery in Spain. Meade holds a BFA from the University of Oregon in Eugene and an MFA from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, N.Y., where he also serves as the Assistant Chairperson of Fine Arts.
Cleveland Institute of Art is supported in part by the residents of Cuyahoga County through a public grant from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture.
