Strata+Sphere, Abstract works by Rochelle WeinerRochelle Weiner is a contemporary multi-media artist, recently returned to her home town of Milwaukee after working and residing 20 years in Chicago. This series of abstract works, entitled “Strata+Sphere”, uses layered painting techniques to depict abstract memories of growing up on Milwaukee’s East Side neighborhood. Rochelle’s main interest in painting lies in storytelling. The layered painting techniques that she has developed – using opaque and transparent mediums to build up layers of color and texture, scraping back to reveal earlier layers and then building up and covering up again, shows a history of what went before, even if in a very subtle way. This tells a story both of her painting process and of her subject matter. She works in varied mediums to achieve her goals, including watercolor on board,
