Barbara Weissberger

Mixing the sweet with the sour is a talent that I am in awe of (as I usually am when I don’t possess said talent myself!) Barbara Weissberger has a gift for this balancing act; layering, contrasting and blending birds nests, grandma’s quilt, rubber tires, flowers, consumable foods, meat… juxtaposing miracles and disasters. As rendered in watercolors these collaged sequences are quite beautiful as all the while your eye is navigating the undercurrents of shockingly macabre concepts…
