Cheyenne Weaver

About the Artist

Cheyenne Weaver (b. San Miguel de Allende, Mexico) is a multidisciplinary artist working primarily in sculpture and drawing. Weaver grew up in Austin and has spent time in New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. She received a BFA from CalArts in 2004 and a masters in social design from Austin Center for Design in 2011. Her work has been exhibited most recently at Gay Duck (Austin), Big Medium (Austin), as well as the Tang Museum (Saratoga Springs), Grey Gallery (New York); Parrish Art Museum (Southampton); the University of Houston Blaffer Gallery (Houston); Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions, LACE (Los Angeles); Pomona College Museum of Art (Pomona); Shoshana Wayne Gallery (Santa Monica); and Machine Project (Los Angeles). Cheyenne lives and works in Austin, Texas.

Artist Statement

Cheyenne Weaver is a multidisciplinary artist working primarily in sculpture and drawing. Her recent work addresses the anxieties of living on the precipice of drastic change and the disruption of normative hierarchy. Her use of natural materials, stains, and plants are methods for building Place and revealing histories that may have been white-washed or forgotten. The work points to an existential rupture of categories and the radical potential in mutation.
