Historical Context:
Armand Merizon was born in 1920 in Kalamazoo, Michigan to a family of first generation Dutch immigrants. He spent his early childhood in the urban areas of Grand Rapids and at the age of ten began to paint, later studying formal painting in New York. Over the course of his 70 year career, Merizon has continued to paint with rigorous dedication and exceptional output despite being diagnosed with macular degeneration and rheumatoid arthritis. In response to these difficult health issues, he has accommodated his conditions by allowing his style to change, creating images that continue to be visually provocative.
