INQUIRE

In viewing one of Weiss’ woven screens, one is continually reminded of his or her presence. The pull on the body is palpable, as chromatic and immersive planes transcend spectators’ physicality and sight. The work’s invitation is made not only by this physical and visual magnetism, but by the persuasion of a space beyond the screen. In this way, the artist acts as mediator between worlds and the works as thresholds of tautly-strung superimposed planes, beautifully paradoxical in diaphanous suspension and strength. The work foregrounds thread itself while reconsidering ideas of the space between the frame as illusionistic window. In utilizing polyester embroidery thread in subtle gradations of fog or nightfall, recalling color field painting, Weiss does so in a medium and manner more immediate or intimate to our bodies than pigment.
