Weber weaves with diverse, modern, quotidian materials. Searching for what quietly exists in our daily surroundings, she transforms those often overlooked materials into works of art which demand attention. Her pieces utilize traditional weaving patterns, which provide texture to conventionally flat surfaces and give an assurance of familiarity and connection to our history. Inspiration for her artwork comes from her travels, current events, and her environment. She strives to create something which seizes the moment and transforms it through medium and connection. Doerte Weber’s work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and can be found in private as well as public collections. She has won numerous awards including the Rick Liberto Award for Visual Arts from the Artist Foundation of San Antonio in 2013. She is probably best known for weaving with plastic bags from newspapers.
