Bill Weaver

Bill Weaver looks for sophisticated aesthetics in simple forms and concepts. His early sculptures were referred to as non-objective folk art because of the simple, naïve imagery. Eventually the forms evolved to a simple geometry. With his forged and fabricated bronze creations Bill works directly with sheet metal to create three-dimensional forms that bring a raw honesty to the sculpture; bronze that is well worked adds a rich unique quality.

 

Bill’s work has also evolved conceptually. He still explores non-objective folk art but uses it as direction rather than definition. Also, instead of relying primarily on real objects he now relies on depth of character in a piece to provide conceptual interest. His objective is to communicate sophisticated aesthetics with a simple visual language that is honest and well worked.
