Large Scale paintings on paper fuse the flat color treatments found on warehouse exteriors with graphic images and pattern. Painted with latex, gouache and watercolor media, these works are conceived as portable murals, which fold and unfold. The found paper collages orchestrate eccentric spaces on an intimate scale. Images float and collide in shallow spaces which hint at fragmented narratives. Weinberg’s imagery lifts its saturated palette and graphic outlines from printed matter and animation of the 60’s and 70’s.
Jonathan Binstock, Curator of Contemporary Art at the Corcoran Museum of Art, observed that “Weinberg’s uncanny ability to inflate and explore this intrinsically compressed space endows her work with a quirky amplitude that upends visual perception, the laws of gravity, and other physical phenomena.”
