As a representational landscape artist, Weeks’ practice combines painting on site with continued work in the studio. Both locations present challenges. Painting in the landscape is tantamount to fielding a thousand questions simultaneously, with so many tones and forms requiring attention at once. Back in the studio, the test turns to reworking the piece, harmonizing its elements to create a successful painting while maintaining the vitality of the original subject.
As a former architecture student, Weeks tends towards structured motifs by incorporating manmade forms or finding defined geometries in pure landscape. While she frequently paints closer to home in Boston, Nantucket, and around New England, traveling and living abroad has extended her range to landscapes across Europe, Africa, and Australasia.
Her work is available at Robert Foster Fine Art (www.robertfosterfineart.com), the Artists Association of Nantucket (www.nantucketarts.org) and in Studio 312 at 450 Harrison Ave.
