Welcome to Hawk Oak Studios
This website displays the paintings of Geoffrey Meredith. Many are landscapes, or cityscapes, done in a style sometimes called either "Mid-Century Modern," or "NorCal Representational Abstraction." They are a 21st-Century reinterpretation of the 'Bay Area Figurative Movement' of the 1950's and '60's. Others are large, gestural non-objective works of the abstract expressioist genre that first appeared in the 50's and 60's in New York. Portraits are in a third gallery.
Geoff was recently featured at the 2016 Pasadena Showcase House for Design, for 52 years benefitting the Los Angeles Philharmonic. He is currently represented at four Northern California galleries: The Christopher Hill Galleries in St. Helena and in Healdsburg; the Slate Contemporary Gallery in Oakland; and the Valley Art Gallery in Walnut Creek. Geoff currently serves as a Commissioner of the Contra Costa County Arts and Culture Commission, and is on the Board of Directors of the Vallery Art Gallery.
