  • About the work


Melissa Meyer has created a diverse oeuvre that includes oil paintings, drawings, watercolors, prints and large-scale public commissions.

Her work is strongly influenced by color and line. Her brushstrokes and patterns possess a glyph-like quality, conveying a vibrant and deeply personal aesthetic language.
Meyer is skilled in a range of different printing techniques, including lithography, etching, monotype, silkscreen, and spit bite aquatint.

This etching was named after reading the two-volume Rock & Roll Elvis Presley biography, after Presley’s iconic song.
Printed in an edition of 30 by Sue Oehme for Riverhouse Editions; this print is 3/30.
This print followed from a 70” x 80” (178 x 203 cm) oil painting of the same name with similar visual attributes from 2002.
