Paintings presents images made as a form of digression from her traditional photographic practice. So the images are presented as short, rhythmical sequences, Paintings moves across the page like a melody. Therefore linking rhythm, colour and form through surface studies. Intended to be considered outside the constraints of context and place, the images in Paintings attempt to exist at the threshold of photographic composition.
Whilst also forming part of Weir's search for a 'pure' image. Therefore, each picture was made according to a specific set of rules and criteria. Finally, Weir attempts to expunge herself from the act of image-making. Consequently, she encounters photography as an immediate, indulging process. These images are nevertheless underscored by tension and palpable throughout Weir’s practice. The transgressing of surfaces and boundaries, the uneasy relationship between camera and subject, and the inevitable constraints of choice and power that hover around the frame of a photograph.
