Artist Statement

Charlene Weisler's urban photography is inspired by the transience and impermanence of street art. Concentrating on the evolving nature of layered graffiti, Weisler’s art captures a timeline of competing efforts and messages eroded by weather and time. Notably, the photographs are “as-is” – as she finds them on the streets - and are not edited or changed in any way. And yet, her haunting photographs create a totally new and self-contained art image, mysteriously missed by the passerby on the street. The result is a rich compendium of texture, color and form that juxtaposes energy with urban decay.

Weisler, a New York City native, is a photographer who has been chronicling street art since 2004. Her perspectives on the subject have been featured in a video at The Wooster Collective, in The Soho Journal Magazine, The New York Sun newspaper and Time Out New York. In addition to many group shows, she has had two solo shows at Bloomingdales Soho and a solo show in Kyoto, Japan. Her website is www.CharleneWeisler.com
