Joan Weber Artist Statement

Joan Weber SculptureThese images represent some of the art that I have made between 1978 and 2021. Most are made intuitively. However, there are several drawings based on the Vedic Square, examples of my interest in and exploration of the relationship between patterns and intuitive abstraction. I work in a variety of materials, all direct and simple, hoping that the basic impulse shines through in each piece. All are inspired by art that I see and the visual world around me.
