Julie Weber is a visual artist working conceptually within the framework of photography. Weber is interested in how images take form and materialize into physical objects. Predominantly cameraless, her work considers how materials can image themselves by depicting their own process. Through methodical application of color, tone, shape, layering, and repetition, material and process are pulled to the fore where they are inseparable from subject matter. Photography’s documental yet ephemeral nature, its simultaneous presence as both image and object, and its changeable relation to perceptibility are core tenets of her work. Weber’s practice does not seek to resolve these dualities but rather perpetuate their tension.

Julie Weber completed her MFA in Photography from Columbia College Chicago (2014). Select solo exhibitions include Dark Adaptation, Bert Green Fine Art, Chicago (2017) and Light Chronology, For The Thundercloud Generation, Chicago (2016).
