DESCRIPTION

Louise Weinberg's work is concerned with the ebb and flow of human relationships. The paintings suggest the sometimes ambivalent paths we must navigate in our relationships with others-/closeness/ distance, connection/ disconnection, and containment /freedom/. Much of her past work has focused on the issue of containment -the very basic human desire for the safety of enclosure and structure vs. the terror of entrapment. The images which reoccur in her nebulous abstract paintings -spheres, eggs, buildings, grids, bowls, bottles, jugs serve as metaphors. In /Connect/Disconnect/, Ms. Weinberg has focused on how one navigates the issue of closeness/distance in a relationship. Ms. Weinberg's paintings are Mixed Media on Polymer.
