Grace Weaver’s work tells stories which are in equal parts revealing and introspective. The artist often works with the concept of the watched female, captured in a net of social interactions, navigating the complexities of urban life. Like a psychological archive of daily routine activities, Weaver’s work mainly chronicles female experiences, in both the private and public realm. Expanding her vocabulary, the new works are painted up close, direct and present. In a similar manner to how she draws with charcoal – marking, rubbing out, and layering to create new arrangements – Weaver exposes previously buried brushstrokes and compositions.
