Event Description

Ruth Bachofner Gallery is pleased to present Elements, an exhibition of new work by Los Angeles- based artist Audra Weaser. There will be a reception for the artist Saturday, December 3, 4-6 PM.

Audra Weaser’s newest body of work explores the essential elements behind natural phenomena such as water and light; to enact a dialogue between atmospheric conditions and inner reflections. The overall feeling is sensual, rhythmic and full of possibility.

Weaser achieves this abstract dialogue by building layers of paint over loose charcoal sketches. As the composition emerges, she refines it to a certain point, then obscures it with a veil of white until the initial colors disappear. From there, she excavates through the layers to reveal a dynamic contrast between color and form. There is an unpredictability about how the colors will reveal themselves in the end, yet all of these works are balanced and flowing, as they evoke the immensity and all-encompassing feeling of nature.

Having grown up spending time in nature, Weaser draws inspiration from her memories, photographs, and the sense of wonder and peacefulness she recalls from childhood. Her works evoke the extraordinary and enveloping feeling of being in nature. Weaser works quickly and lays down each layer of color at once, without pausing to over-rationalize her intuitive decisions. In this way, Weaser’s own process resembles nature and the growth of new life.
