Benjamin Weaver creates spatial tension through his use of contrasting colors arranged in a geometric framework. Imagery and color work both with and against each other to create movement within the composition. By the artist’s careful placement of line and use of subtly graduated color, forms seem either to recede or project, constantly shifting within the picture plane. Weaver accentuates these structural relationships by working with a simplified palette and reduced forms, though the ideas at work in his compositions remain highly complex.
Weaver’s work has been exhibited in galleries and juried shows throughout the Mid-Atlantic region, and is held in the permanent collections of Capital One, the Fox School of Business at Temple University, Episcopal Academy, Cube Smart, The Dane, and many private collections.
