Ann Weber is a native of Jackson, Michigan, and a graduate of Purdue University and the California College of Arts and Crafts. She lives and works in Los Angeles. Working largely with found materials, particularly discarded cardboard boxes, she explores the aesthetic qualities of the mundane and commonplace. She was originally a potter, and in her often large-scale sculptures draws upon her background in craft. Characteristic of a significant portion of her work, Personages, River consists of forms that simultaneously complement and oppose one another. Interconnectedness being an important idea behind Weber’s art, the piece suggests the delicate, often tentative nature of relationships.
