Ann Weber's Foray Into Color

Ann Weber's Foray Into Color

Almost, 2005

I love Ann Weber's ginormous forms and the fact that she makes them with, uh, cardboard she scavenges. The artist, who's got a show on at CAFAM, makes mostly groupings of biomorphic forms to convey ideas about relationships. The cool thing we discovered, as we were putting together a story about Weber for our August/September issue, is that she's increasingly moving beyond the usual cardboard hues of white and brown. It's harder to find trash cardboard in color, of course. Weber says she almost wrecked her car swerving to get to a green tequila box by the roadside. See more of her sculpture here.

Can't get enough craft? Neither can we. Heck Yes Craft is a series of visual blog posts with a simple mission: to show off amazing work. Come back on Fridays for more.
