Title: Unknown Saints
Medium: Computer enhanced photography
Size: 6" x 6 1/2"
Unknown Saints, a computer generated photo-collage, came from a trip to Israel and Weaver's feelings about religion and land that refer not only to the current struggles, but also back to the crusades. This work was created on a Macintosh Quadra 650, using PhotoShop 2.5 and Fractal Painter 2.0.
Weaver has a BA in Studio Art from the University of Vermont, Burlington and an MFA in Advertising Design from Syracuse University, New York. She is Assistant Professor of Graphic Design in the Department of Art and Art History at the University of Alabama at Birmingham and recently had a one person exhibition, A Compass to Steer By, that featured computer generated prints on hand-made paper. Her design work has won numerous awards and appears in PRINT's Best Logos & Symbols, Vol. II, and Innovative Low-Budget Design published by Supon Design.
Her selected group exhibitions include: CSU Summer Arts Student Culmination Exhibition, Reese Bullen Gallery, Humboldt State University, Arcata, California, 1994; ArtWalk / Artists of Building 111 Studios, Birmingham, Alabama, 1994; Hot Water, UAB Department of Art Faculty Show, 10.2.4 Gallery, Birmingham, 1992; We Live in a Political World, Fifth Gate Arts Center, Birmingham, 1992; The Exquisite FAX: An In-progress Collaborative Project, Focus Gallery, University of Florida, Gainesville, 1992; and Double Exposure, UAB Department of Art Faculty Show, UAB Visual Arts Gallery, Birmingham, 1992.
