Moon Over San Pedro

Ann Weber’s large biomorphic sculptures have been described as bizarre characters from a story, hanging on the wall or sitting in the middle of the gallery like strange and evocative outcroppings of nature or outer space.Named after a wall-mounted sculpture, the exhibition features Weber’s most recent works, created after moving to San Pedro from the Bay area in 2015.

Ann Weber transforms found boxes from the ordinary into art. She cuts and weaves cardboard contorting its form. Weber explores the little quirks that keep relationships from being a perfect fit. Her work echoes intimate bodies in imperfect balance.
