Meg Dooley is a mixed-media painter living in McCandless, a suburb of Pittsburgh, PA, in the house where she grew up. Meg creates topographical paintings using acrylics and an eclectic mix of media. In addition to brushes, blades, rubber stamps, and stencils, her tools include a variety of re-purposed everyday objects: fly swatters, pastry cutters, spritzer bottles, drawer organizers, sink strainers, grill pans, artificial flower parts, hair curlers, grocery items… basically, whatever might create an interesting pattern. She also harvests puddles and strips of dried paint as collage materials. Meg's inspiration comes from her avid (albeit self-directed) investigation of theoretical physics, cosmology, and all things quantum. She has no idea how studying these subjects results in paintings. Current series focus on Entropic Humanism, Quantum Cosmology, and Qubic Spin on Observed Mysteries.
