Garth Weiser's linear compositions employ texture, color, and light to challenge the viewer's visual expectations and to explore the nature of perception. Though meticulously planned and highly structured, his work feels organic and effortless, blurring the lines between reality and illusion.
Technique is very important to Weiser's practice, and he puts distinct emphasis on the way the paint is physically applied to the canvas. His process often begins with layering a thick impasto or relief outline on the canvas before applying paint, creating a three-dimensional depth with an atmosphere of light that implies architectural space.
