Audra Weaser's work takes nature as its central point of reference. Her interest lies in creating physically charged images reminiscent of watery landscapes. These abstracted scenes are formed from rhythmic manipulations of color and materials. Her process begins by building layers of pigment to form organic, intuitive compositions. Then, through the negative process of sanding, she navigates back into her painted surface. In this excavation, mysterious forms emerge from a white expanse. These works invoke images such as swampy bayous, mystical forests, and light shining in from gathering weather. They channel an essence of what is unseen, yet translated into a visual and poetic experience.
Audra Weaser was raised in Southern California and lives and works in Los Angeles. She earned her M.F.A in painting from Claremont Graduate University. She has shown widely in Los Angeles and has exhibited nationally and abroad. Her work is in private and public collections in cities around the world, including Hong Kong, Abu Dhabi, and Singapore.
