Wönzimer Gallery Closing Ann Weber

Step into a world of monumental, sensuous, and also anthropomorphic sculpture, made from discarded cardboard boxes. Most of Weber’s pieces reference her personal life as well as the current state of the world.

Ann Weber’s technique of weaving with cardboard strips to provide structural strength is a metaphor for the artist’s lifelong practice of bringing people together.

Based in Los Angeles, Weber creates large-scale forms exploring the themes of relationships, community, and sustainability. After years of making functional pottery in New York City, she relocated to California. Additionally, she turned to cardboard for its lightness, inspired by Frank Gehry’s cardboard furniture. Each sculpture is crafted from foraged boxes, assembled with stapled strips, and animated by the found juxtaposition of printed colors and letters.
