The Art of The Bride : Marie Meier

Marie Meier’s Bride sips pink champagne and wields a cigarette holder with decadent aplomb. She keeps a brain in a bell jar and poses against intricately spooky wallpaper. The image is scratched and weathered like an old postcard, yet as vivid as a stained glass window.

In another painting, The Bride appears as mysterious and formal as a Byzantine icon.

Marie Meier’s subjects include musicians like Lux Interior; pinup queens, strippers and burlesque artistes; Bettie Page and Amanda Palmer, all wrapped in flowers and tentacles, flaming hearts, and candy colored Dia de los Muertos skeletons. Meier calls her outside art style “goth’n roll”.

Meier keeps an eye-popping website and several art blogs, all accessible through this one.
