Artist: Heiki Weber


I know that many of you saw the art work by Heiki Weber when it was featured on Apartment Therapy last week.  I couldn't help myself from doing some research on her work and share with you some images that I think are just great.
I love creating design in my home using things I already own- As with any kind of art that is created using recycled materials, found art or in the case of Andy Goldsworthy , art out of nature- I am always impressed when an artist uses materials that are common.
Heiki Weber has taken doodling with a permanent marker to a unique level. Using a marker and clearly many hours, Ms. Weber has meticulously recreated common place doodle designs into mesmerizing, hypnotic and awing pieces of art work. In her work Utopia she covered an entire room with black marker- The floors are covered in vinyl and the gallery walls, requiring not only a change of canvas but surly acrobatic and yogis talents combined.



The following images are an installation she created in a bathroom- I would love to have a projector screen with cool images in my W.C.
Her works are shown at:
Leopold Hoesch Museum Düren in Germany
Kunstmuseum Bonn, Germany
Collection of the state in Germany
Cleve Carney Collection, Chicago
Ludwig Collection in Germany

Wow, jaw-dropping. I'm trying to imagine all the fun things I would put into a projector in my bathroom. Fun.
I'm not a good doodler because I have drawing talent. Mostly circles, boxes and flowers people wouldn't recognize as flowers...

I love to doodle our names (my nuclear family's that is) and cool words- not sure if that makes me vain or just a lover of letters.

Oh Lady Ren, thanks for sharing those! The floor patterns are especially fascinating!! The pink ones are my faves, but not because of the color but because of teh way they integrate into everythign else in the interior!

Greetings Ren, we are finally home from vacation. I just popped in to see what you've been up to this summer. I love all of the art and food. I'm going to have to try a couple of these recipes. They look fabulous. I also very much like the bottle cap art. I know a boy who would like a go at this himself. I hope summer is going well for all of you. Be well and happy.
