Ann Weber turned tocardboard twenty years ago after working in ceramics for the first part of hercareer. This shift is rooted in both practical and artistic reasons; mostimportantly, cardboard has allowed her to explore the fine line between art andcraft and engage the contemporary zeitgeist through alternative, everydaymaterials. By creating something extraordinary out of nothing, her sculpturessuccessfully resonate with a wide range of audiences.
From May 22 until September 11, 2011, Ann Weber's large-scale, totemic sculptures were on view at Los Angeles's acclaimed Craft and Folk Art Museum. This catalogue was published to accompany the important exhibition, cheekily titled Love and Other Audacities, and contains an essay by the museum's executive director, Suzanne Isken, as well as an interview with the writer Kristin Farr.
