Inspired by graphic design and art from the 1980s and 1990s, GARTH WEISER‘s paintings begin with a multiple coating grid in which he builds and manipulates creating tension between multiple horizons and perspectives. In fact, each canvas is structured around a horizon line, and is orbited either by circles or a series of slanted groups of black-and-white striation. Space is delineated through simple color and shade changes. The result challenges the nature of perception by continually questioning the process of applying paint to a canvas.
GARTH WEISER was born in 1979 in Montana and lives and works in New York. After receiving his MFA from Columbia University in 2005, he had successful solo exhibitions at Guild & Greyshkul, New York (2006), Kavi Gupta Gallery, Chicago (2007), Norma Mangione, Torino (2010), White Flag Projects, St. Louis (2010), Casey Kaplan, New York (2009 and 2011).
