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). Weber is a FOTOFILMIC18 shortlist photographer and finalist for an upcoming traveling exhibition to San Francisco, Seoul, and Vancouver.  Her limited-edition artist book, REMNANTS, was published by Skylark Editions (2017) and was selected by the Lucie Foundation for the Month of Photography Los Angeles Photo Book Exhibition (2018). Weber has exhibited at venues including Bert Green Fine Art, Silver Eye Center for Photography, Chicago Artists Coalition, Hyde Park Art Center, Dominican University, and Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design. Weber was an artist-in-residence at the Chicago Artists Coalition (2015). The Hand Magazine, Papersafe, and ArtAscent have featured Weber’s work in printed publications.
