Deceptively simple at first glance, the vividly colorful abstractions of Berkeley artist Stephanie Weber reveal themselves upon closer inspection to be full of unusual textures and contrasts of material. She studied with Richard Diebenkorn and Nathan Oliveira as a student at UCLA in the early 1960s. She is perhaps best known as a painter though recently working more in mixed media on paper.

“My desire as a painter is to hold the tension and balance between structure, reason, and intuition – the architect in me and the dancer in me – and to give form to what I cannot name. With paint and substance, I’m trying to build a place where unexpected associations and resonance can occur.”
—Stephanie Weber
