SPOTLIGHT Frederic Weber

We started working with US artist, Frederic Weber, after featuring one of his photographs in our interview with W.M. Hunt for At Length last year. Weber has been an actively producing artist for several years, with a number of collections holding his work. These include such renowned institutions as the Whitney Museum of American Art, the George Eastman House and Museum of Fine Arts Houston.

You'll find Weber's work in the gallery Print Room. Our inventory is made up of his two most recent bodies of work; Domestic Views and Gravitas.

In Domestic Views, he uses the tropes of the still life to explore the joys and terrors of growing up, while Gravitas is a meditation on the transition from midlife into old age. Weber photographs with color negative film—highlighting the importance of light, chemistry and film emulsion to his practice. The resulting pigment prints are exquisitely color-rich.

Both of these thoughtful and provocative series can be viewed here and are available as follows:

16” x 20”, Edition of 10
30” x 40”, Edition of 7
40” x 50”, Edition of 3
