Marcia Weese at Tina Goodwin Fine Art in Denver
MARCIA WEESE | P A I R I N G S
Opening Reception with the Artist
Friday November 16 from 5 until 8
Show Continues through January 5, 2013
Goodwin Fine Art is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of new monotypes by Boulder artist, Marcia Weese.
The show entitled PAIRINGS will feature over 30 new print images of everyday objects; clothespins, laundry flapping on a clothes-line, wishbones, pins and needles, milk pails, —some of the objects laden with associative memory of domestic chores of yore, while other objects evoke a more whimsical note. All are taken to a new status and stature as some of the objects are enlarged to five feet in scale giving them a totemic feel. Weese is drawn to the surprisingly figurative and sculptural qualities found in these humble objects.
A formidable printmaker combined with a background in sculpture, Weese builds multiple layers of color through the printing process creating a dynamic interplay between the textural background of the wood substrate used to print on and the objects that emerge 3D from the background. These voluptuous works on paper glow from within. Stoic singular compositions are contrasted with more random placement of multiple objects depicting nails, pins and needles.
Weese was born and raised in Chicago, schooled on the east coast and currently divides her time between her studios in Boulder and Carbondale. Before moving out west she lived and worked as an artist in New York City showing at the popular John Weber Gallery. After living in NYC for close to a decade, Weese moved to Chicago. She showed and exhibited both 2D and 3D work at Marianne Deson Gallery, and the Fassbender Gallery. Weese also participated in Sculpture Chicago, a month long outdoor sculpture symposium. In addition, she received a percent for art grant for a site-specific piece on the shore of Lake Michigan. While living in Santa Fe for ten years she exhibited at Conlon Siegal, Munson Gallery and Gerald Peters Gallery.
