The inspiration for Audra Weaser’s abstract landscapes comes from the Southern California terrain of her upbringing, particularly her memories of the transitions between mountains, ocean, and desert. Weaser studied abstract, non-objective painting, though her earliest works were sanded wall sculptures. Her best-known body of paintings borrows from both approaches. She begins each work by applying layers of color to wood panel, and then covers the surface in an overlay of white paint. Later, she sands away the layers—a process she calls “excavation”—to create compositions that resemble reflections of forests on water. Weaser explains: “The trees reflecting on a watery plain reveal a shimmering version rather than a solid fact. My paintings are a desire to . . . reconnect to the unseen as a resonating poetic experience.”
