Almost indecipherable with its maelstrom of colours and lines, Jin Meyerson's Untitled work truly captures the excitement and exhilaration of a cycling race. In large scale and meticulous detail, Meyerson presents a visually overwhelming scene, a bewildering and chaotic mix of colours and figures, with no compositional centrality. At the top of the canvas there is a seemingly conventional, and realistically painted rural backdrop, into which a cycling race is progressing. The artist violently interrupts this scene across a sharp, irregularly pointed line, under which a swirling and distorted wave of events unfolds, wheels, cyclists and colourful jerseys, mixing together to form an abstracted mass.
Meyerson takes the source material for his works from magazines and cultural ephemera, and is motivated by the theme of speed and movement. The parabolic waves of the lower part of the canvas thus introduce the urgency, disorder and bedlam of the race. This shows a remarkable skill on the part of the painter, speaking of his originality and experimentation in painting style. This experimentation is present in every area of the canvas, the distorted figures still readable whether produced in poured or splattered paint. This painterly style means that the artist can impart a greater sense of speed in the image than the original photograph that he worked from and that the viewer can vigorously experience the energy of the race.
