Neat As A Pin

At first glance it looks as though the artist is either just moving in, or about to move out; until you study the paintings. The paintings are finished. That's right, when it comes to applying paint, Ingo Meller doesn't spend a lot of time trying to cover the canvas. A few competent brush strokes and he's outta there. More about that later.
This post is about the studio; that sanctuary where art is born. The word conjures up different visions for each of us, but here we have a spare and sparse space that completely jibes with the artist's mental attitude towards painting. Kinda makes you wanna mess the place up a bit.
