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.
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
