Derek Weisberg _ Oakland, CA

I create works of art that are emotional and psychological self-portraits. Through my work I aim to make sense of my life, my experiences, and the times I live. I do not wish to represent like a photo, instead to achieve an innerness. My goal is to create images, which are accessible and allow the viewer to have an experience which can not be easily articulated, but felt. Simultaneously igniting contemplation, reflection and a lasting relationship with the work. I attempt to express basic human qualities, which are universal and timeless. At its core the works reflect humanist ideology; searching for truth and universal morality based on the commonality of the human condition.

Derek Weisberg holds a BFA in ceramics from the California College of Arts and Crafts, Oakland, CA and has shown extensively on the west coast since 2002, with a recent solo exhibit at Anno Domini in 2008 titled Victoria Everlasting.
