Film by Eric Minh Swenson.

Working exclusively in graphite, Christine Weir creates obsessively detailed and multilayered drawings on paper and clay panel. The surfaces of her works are manipulated to create texture, while also maintaining the smooth metallic properties and delicateness that pencil innately provides.

Her work was initially inspired by overcoming a fear of flying, admiring the landscape as viewed from above. From there she began using Google Earth as a way to explore specific locations related to environmental degradation. She isolates patterns from these satellite perspectives, often adding geometrical elements to the composition. Weir’s interests include chronicling the effects of the nuclear industrial complex, mass farming, water manipulation and pollution.

Weir received her BFA in drawing from Kutztown Univeristy of Pennsylvania and her MS in Art History from Pratt Institute. She has exhibited her work throughout California including Mt. St. Mary's College, Vincent Price Art Museum, San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art, the Brand Library and Art Center, Coagula Curatorial, den contemporary, and Curve Line Space.
