Dana Meyer’s sculptures are characterized by boundless energy, extreme expressivity and unique precision. Her works do not follow the usual process of a small model rendered and then gradually increased to the desired size, Dana’s works are all hand forged casted steel which requires her extraordinary spatial perception and vision, married with her equally extraordinary craftsmanship.
Dana Meyer’s works require no theoretical guidance. Their overwhelming presence does not speak of a particular school or concept. Instead her works are characterized by their lasting effect on us, the viewer.
Dana Meyer was born in 1982 in Halle an der Saale. She studied history, literature and cultural studies, and then sculpture at the School of Art Giebichenstein Halle.
