About Elaine Cameron-Weir

Sculptor, painter, and installation artist Elaine Cameron-Weir uses materials ranging from wood, concrete, and plaster to marble, brass, and acrylic on canvas, producing objects and wall works that riff on 20th-century art while alluding to science fiction and an imagined future. Weir’s body of work has also included sequenced cast metal slabs, whose uneven surfaces and cracked edges evidence process and recall artists such as Eva Hesse and Richard Serra. Her 12-foot houseplant Palm (2012) is constructed entirely of brass, while Times Zones Radio Waves (2012), a bamboo-like structure composed of alternating metals, features stalks that converge into antennae.
