Emily Weiner (b. 1981, Brooklyn, NY) is Nashville-based painter. Combining ceramics and oil painting, her works configure icons, geometries, and material motifs which have been revived, reshaped, and recoded over time. She is interested in the ways in which symbols move between the collective unconscious and individual perception. The collective human experience is at the heart of Weiner’s conceptual framework, and generative of diverse imagery in her painting. You can see how she translated her style into a coloring book page in Between the Lines: An RxART Coloring Book by Contemporary Artists – Volume 9.
Weiner received her BA from Barnard College, Columbia University (2003) and her MFA in Fine Arts at the School of Visual Arts in New York City (2011). She is represented by Red Arrow Gallery in Nashville, TN and has exhibited work at Whitespace Gallery (Atlanta, GA); Entrée Bergen (Norway); Huxley-Parlour (London); Andrea Festa Fine Art (Rome); Kunsthall Grenland (Porsgrunn, Norway); Wespace (Shanghai); Gerdarsafn Museum (Kopavogur, Iceland); Soloway (Brooklyn); and Pentimenti (Philadelphia), among other venues.
She has been a Visiting Artist at the American Academy in Rome (2015); residency co-leader at Watershed Center for the Ceramic Arts, Newcastle, Maine (2018); Artist Teacher-Resident at The Cooper Union, New York, NY (2014); artist-in-residence at The Banff Centre, Canada (2012); and resident at Camac Art Center in France (2011). Her work was featured in New American Paintings in 2020.
