Marnie Weber

is an American artist whose works includes photography, sculpture, installations, film, video, and performances. Much of Weber’s art revolves around a recurring cast of characters. An animal often found in her work is the bear, which is linked to the Greek goddess Artemis. These characters, among others, are placed in “vividly colorful environment[s]“, ornate, Empire style interiors or dark, dense, eerie landscapes. She also focuses on the adventures of women, which sometimes take the form of half-human, half-animal hybrids with bodies cut from pornographic magazines, and other times, pale-faced, folksy ghosts known as “Spirit Girls”. Her work is featured on the cover of the 1998 Sonic Youth album A Thousand Leaves. Se is also a musician. Marnie Weber has had solo exhibitions internationally, notably at Marc Jancou Contemporary, New York (2012), West of Rome Public Art, Altadena CA (2010), Le Magasin Centre National d’Art Contemporain de Grenoble, France (2009) and has works in major museum collections.
