About

Ken Weathersby’s abstract paintings play with and against conventions of paintings’ structure by cutting out, displacing and inverting parts. Recent works have been embedding photographic images that juxtapose elements--sculpture, human or animal bodies, photography that are foreign to the abstract arrangements. The inserted figures are physically inside the works, but stand apart from the painted compositions. They gesture and look. As in a film, relationships emerge that conjoin unlike things across the plain. Color functions as color, but also to reveal, intensify or suture these structural breaks. Ken Weathersby has exhibited his work nationally and internationally, with notable solo shows at MINUS SPACE (New York), Pierogi Gallery (New York), One River Gallery (Englewood, NJ), NIAD Art Center Gallery (Richmond, CA), Some Walls (Oakland, CA), and the John Cotton Dana Gallery, Rutgers University (Newark). His work has been included in group exhibitions at the National Academy of Art Museum (New York), Honey Ramka (Brooklyn), ODETTA (Brooklyn), 57w57Arts (New York), Parallel Art Space (Ridgewood, NY), Mixed Greens (New York), Aljira Art Center (Newark), the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation Gallery (Morristown, NJ), Barbara Walters Gallery at Sarah Lawrence College, the Visual Art Center of NJ (Summit, NJ), Seven (Miami), Toomey Tourell (San Francisco), and I.S. Projects (Leiden, Netherlands), among many others. Weathersby has received numerous awards and residencies, most recently the Individual Artist Painting Fellowship by the Mid-Atlantic Arts Council/NJSCA (2016). His work has been written about in Hyperallergic, the Huffington Post, Brooklyn Magazine, the New American Paintings blog, Two Coats of Paint, Painter’s Bread, and elsewhere. Weathersby holds an MFA in Painting from Cranbrook Academy of Art. He was born in Mississippi and has lived in the New York City area since 1990.
