“[Un]Ravel” focuses exclusively on Meier’s new body of work created during his 2016 Individual Artist Fellowship in Photography from the Delaware Division of the Arts. Meier challenged himself to photograph the same subject – a ball of string – every day. The result is a series of striking photographs that explore string and its unraveling as metaphors for life and change. Meier writes:

[Un]Ravel is about when things come undone. It is about the loss of what was.
It is a shift in the state of things,
It is a movement from the way things were to something else,
It is about the uniqueness of chaos, and how it is never the same twice,
It is an inability to put things back the way they were,
It is about finding quiet, grace, and balance within the random mess.

The exhibition will be on view from Feb. 3-24, with an opening reception on Friday, Feb. 3, from 5-7 p.m. The reception is free and open to the public.

The Mezzanine Gallery is located in the Carvel State Office Building, 820 N. French St., Wilmington, DE 19801 and open Monday-Friday from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
