Ellen Altfest Ocula Conversation Ellen Altfest

The paintings of Ellen Altfest are ethereal in their detail.

Lawrence Weiner

b. 1942, USA

Born in 1942 and growing up in the South Bronx, New York, Weiner had limited exposure to Fine Art and instead drew inspiration from his surroundings. A founding figure of Conceptual Art in its emergence in the late 1960s, Lawrence Weiner is regarded as one of the most pivotal artists working today with a career of over fifty years. Using language as his medium, Weiner considers himself a sculptor and his artworks, realised as ‘language + the material referred to’ are ideas that can be transformed into a multitude of forms.
