Deborah Weiss is a printmaker/mixed media artist. Her work addresses the fleeting effects of atmospheric conditions and natural elements on the land and on water. The exchange between terrain, climate, temperature is constant yet often times transforming by the moment.
By printing her carved woodblocks, carborundum plates and salvaged wood boards, Weiss Is able to both excavate and conceal visual information. Each pass through the press yields calculated and also unexpected visual elements. The weathered /salvaged boards that are used directly chronicle the exploration of the atmospheric elements evident in the imagery.
Weiss has exhibited in numerous galleries and universities, including the International Print Center (NYC), Shenzhen University (China), MPG Contemporary (Boston), Whistler Museum of Art (PA), Pacific Rim International Print Exhibition (HI), Minnesota National Print Biennial, Museum of the Living Artist (CA), Center for Contemporary Printmaking (CT), Mattatuck Museum (CT), Monster Truck Gallery (Dublin). Weiss was born in New York and maintains a studio and residence in Ridgefield, Connecticut.
Her work is included in both private and public collections including Mattatuck Museum, Fidelity Corporate Collection, Harvard Medical International, Dempsey, Myers + Co., Clark University, Ritz Carlton Hotels, Four Season Hotels, The Saratoga. Weiss’ work has been included in regional and national publications. She is a juried member of Los Angeles Printmakers, Boston Printmakers and Silvermine Guild of Artists.
