November 2005: Shannon Weber Sculpture
Shannon Weber approaches primitive forms of weaving and tweaks them into â€œnewâ€ aboriginal forms for the current millennium. Her current work uses a heavy mixture of found and gathered objects such as Beaver chewed sticks, domestic cast offs, reclaimed metal, sea kelp, rattan, canvas, wax linen, sea grass and sea grass roots encaustic, acrylics, and over dyes. To quote Weber â€œIf it bends I use it!â€ Her work tells a story from her soul; inspired by the unknown past and created using her own discoveries of technique and style. The elements of Fire, Water, Earth and Air spin the chaos of seemingly arbitrary and random materials into shapes of such color and texture you want to jump into each piece and live there.
