“In Weston’s dreamscapes, Bambi becomes the hunter, babies turn into towering portents, and seemingly innocuous archetypes pull us into a secret world of unpredictable danger…
Weston’s work has the quality of an incipient Grand Guignol, incorporating the antipodal textures of Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood and Hieronymous Bosch.”
- Jazno Francouer (Simulacra : Arca Lumis)
Grace Weston is an award-winning photographer who works in her studio creating narrative imagery with staged vignettes that combine humor with psychological themes. She constructs her sets as well as fabricates and finds props and characters to address the dilemmas, illusions, joys, and fears that at once seem so personal, yet are also universal.
A 2012 nominee for the Northwest Contemporary Art Awards, a finalist in PhotoEspana’s Descubrimientos PHE 09, and one of the Whatcom Museum 2008 Photography Biennial’s “Nine to Watch”, Grace’s work has been exhibited and collected widely in private and public collections in the United States, Europe, Scandinavia and Japan and featured in fine art magazines in China, Spain, Portugal, Italy, England, Russia, and the Netherlands.
Editorial clients include “O, the Oprah Magazine”, “More Magazine”, “Discover Magazine”, “Portland Monthly”, “Seattle Metropolitan”, “Pittsburgh Magazine”, and “Northwest Palate”.
Grace’s work is included in the book Microworlds, published in 2011 by Laurence King Publishing.
