Grace Weaver

Grace Weaver has created a painterly universe of the modern Western world. Her works can be read as social commentary of city life and its inhabitants. Although her protaganists often seem out of place, the scenarios stand in as markers of the mundane – whether working from home, pursuing outdoor recreation or spending leisure time at bars. With an inward gaze, their bodies moving clumsily in space, they seem overwhelmed by the complexities of everyday life. Combining color and story-telling, her works offer vast possibilities of interpretation and depict the vividness of modern experience.

Grace Weaver graduated with an MFA from the Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond in 2015. She has been awarded with grants and residencies including a VCUARTS Dean’s Graduate Research Grant (2014), Artist-in-Residence at DakshinaChitra, Chennai, Tamil Nadu, IMD (2012) and the Burlington City Arts’ ArtLab residency, Burlington, VT (2012).

Her work is currently on view at Neues Musem Nürnberg, Nürnberg, DE until June, 06 2024.
