Amazing, interdimensional detailed oil paintings of realism and fantasy styles by Ilene Meyer, (December 30, 1939 – June 3, 2009), who was an American painter from the state of Washington.
You can see that in a lot of her works she loved to feature checkered roads or floors and pathways that she creates as a foundation to her surreal paintings. These checkered designs reminding of “Alice in Wonderland“, after Alice goes down the rabbit hole into the now infamous room with locked doors and a checkered floor, with the pattern symbolizing the duality of good vs. evil that seems to happen in some of her paintings.
Ilene’s subjects varied from her use of realism with animals (dinosaurs too), flowers, plants, and people that were typically set in colorful splash of fantasy worlds that offered a peek into other dimensions you read about or visualize in your mind whilst meditating. Her works offered a calming and soothing sense, with imaginative landscapes of a mental getaway to enhance your daydreams.
