Elise Weber

Elise Weber's interdisciplinary work explores aesthetic memory through new fauvist forms and queer imagery. Connecting with her community, Weber continues her exploration of identity in her gum portraits. Interviewing her sitter about their identity she explores how art, media and literature play a roll in identity politics.

 

Her two previous bodies of work, Bless Your Heart and Let’s Talk About Lady Stuff, use a twentieth- century aesthetic to explore the exterior (social) and interior (personal) gaze through photography and sculpture.

Weber's work has been recently exhibited in Los Angeles, CA, Houston, TX, Nantes, FR, San Antonio, TX, Denver, CO, Marfa, TX, and Hudson, NY.

Weber studied photography at Sam Houston State University to receive her Bachelor of Fine Arts. Awarded the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Fellowship, Weber continued her education at the University of Houston as a graduate teaching fellow. Weber currently practices in Sacramento, California while teaching photography and art at Sierra College, Cosumnes River College, and American River College.
