Branch Gallery, Inglewood (Los Angeles), California, is pleased to announce their upcoming exhibition, “Elemental,” featuring local fiber artist Deborah Weir. This exhibition will include work from Weir’s series about the four basic elements: earth, fire, wind and water. Many of the pieces explore abstract ways of depicting these elements. Weir directly responds to the Earth’s increasing temperatures, violent wind storms, rising seas, and farm land erosion through varied processes and materials. Inspired by climate change and the brutal effects it has on Earth, many of Weir’s pieces have been dyed and over-dyed to create depth in her imagery. Each piece contains numerous layers, constructed using collage, paper lamination, applique, felting, paint and other media. Finer markings are hand-stitched to add further detail in Weir’s imagery. Repurposed household plastics, bits of metal, and fabric integrate , revealing Weir’s perspective on the terror, excitement and beauty of Earth.
