"You walk through the landscape and sense it, your emotions are stirred up when the smell of the bush intoxicates your body, or you simply feel the first rains of the wet season." - David Weir

Lines overlap and interweave across the canvas, sometimes forming shapes and at other times falling off the edges. These lines are considered and elegant, in the tradition of Brice Marden, hinting at land formations or wanderings across the landscape from an aerial point of view, in the same way Aboriginal artists paint a ‘dreamtime story’. Similarly, shapes and patterns in Weir’s paintings might be symbols, but their use here is much more subtle - they barely emerge out of the background in a palette of ochre, brown, sand, white and black.

Alternatively, using ink and silkscreen allows Weir to inject a dramatic energy into his works on paper, invoking the sensations and memories of being in the Australian Outback. These works are reminiscent of the dynamism of Australian artist Stanislaus Rapotec, or French artist Pierre Soulanges.
