Weavings reflecting on COVID-19 and everyday life during the pandemic.
About the Artist
Doerte Weber is a self taught weaver born in Germany and currently living and working in San Antonio, Texas. Her work has been exhibited internationally and is a part of numerous private and public collections. She is inspired by the history and work of Bauhaus women weavers. As fellow autodidacts they embraced free experimentation, learning by trial and error and were unhampered by previous knowledge.
Weber weaves with diverse modern, quotidian materials. In this process, she searches to push the boundaries of the materials and use the to tell broader stories and give the work specificity and context. Inspiration for her work comes from current events as well as everyday experience, creating something which seizes the moment and transforms it through medium and connection.
