Artist of the moment…….Susan Weil

 

Susan Weil is perhaps known as the wife of artist Robert Rauschenberg, but Susan Weil is also a wonderful artist herself. Susan Weil was born in the year 1930 in New York City. Susan Weil creates wonderful dimensional works in addition to creating prints and she also produced books of her drawings.

Weil studied at the Academie Julian located in Paris. Weil also studied with the previous post, Morris Kantor at the Art Students League of New York City. Weil also attended Black Mountain College of Art.

It was while attending the Black Mountain College of Art she met and would fall in love with painter Robert Rauschenberg. The couple had one child from this marriage. The couple were married in 1950 and divorced in 1953.

I enjoy her creative use of perspective in her work. She takes a cue from the Cubists in painting or working with the same subject from multiple angles and viewpoints.

In this clip we view a show from 2013:

Weil has been the recipient of fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Guggenheim Foundation.

A great interview with Susan Weil here:

price range information: Sorry none available.

If you enjoy looking at dimension in art, be sure and check out the work of artist Patrick Hughes. Hughes uses forced perspective to get wonderful depth in his work.
