Ann Weber (born September 21, 1950) is an American artist living and working in the List of San Pedro artists area of Los Angeles. She received a BA in Art History at Purdue University in 1972 and an MFA in Ceramics at California College of the Arts in Oakland/San Francisco studying with Viola Frey Weber’s large organic sculptures exist in the borderland between abstraction and figuration[1]. She commutes the everyday into the extraordinary, utilizing found cardboard to create poignant, sensuous, anthropomorphic forms[2] Her tall, upright pieces bear striking resemblance to the human body, an effect that is amplified by the artist’s proclivity for grouping multiple sculptures into a single work, thereby alluding to our natural sociality and desire to find connection—within a clan, a family, or a relationship[3]
