Meredith Pardue

Meredith Pardue is widely known for her dynamic, large-scale compositions
featuring colorful abstract forms derived from nature. Born in Monroe,
Louisiana and based in Austin, Texas, Pardue holds an M.F.A. from Parsons
School of Design in New York and a B.F.A. from the Savannah College of Art
and Design. Following her studies, Pardue traveled extensively throughout
the United States. Her work draws inspiration from the varied flora and
landscapes of the American South, the Caribbean, and Central America,
recalling the transparency of water, the translucency of petals, and the
opacities of foliage.

As a painter Pardue combines intuitive gesture with deliberate mark making.
Often starting from a pale ground, she builds up her surfaces with successive
layers of paint in colorful applications that range from delicate ink stains to
more pigment rich brushstrokes. The varied textures and layered coloring of
Pardue’s plantlike forms reflect the history of this cumulative and organic
process.

The work of Meredith Pardue is prominently displayed in several notable
private and corporate collections, including Exxon Mobile Corporate
Headquarters, J. Crew Corporate Headquarters, Genstar Capital, BBVA
Compass, the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation, University of Texas at
Austin, UT Southwestern Medical Center, New York Presbyterian Hospital,
Lamar Corporate Headquarters, Marina Bay Sands Singapore, SCAD Fash
Museum, and the Savannah College of Art & Design. Her work has been
exhibited worldwide and published in Architectural Digest, Modern Luxury
Interiors Texas, Luxe Magazine, Traditional Home, Elle Decoration South
Africa, Dwell, and New American Paintings.
