Kathy Weaver

Highland Park, IL, United States

Kathy Weaver explores the nature of humans and how they conduct their business, whether they are engaged in war or in private matters of pleasure or sorrow. She examines these dramas through the imagery of robots, central figures in this technological age. Weaver stitches airbrushed textiles, creates papier mâché interactive robots, makes bronze sculptures for textile environments and reconstructs battery-operated toys. Weaver employs the airbrush as a painting tool, while the incongruity of soft painted satin for hard objects provides an element of humor to the work. Weaver exhibits nationally and internationally and has had numerous solo shows. She received an Illinois Arts Council Grant, 2012, and has received numerous residencies at Banff Centre, Hambidge Center for the Arts and Sciences and Ragdale Foundation. Her series, “Guns Are Us,” is in the collection of the Museum of Arts and Design in New York City.
