The power of the human form is unlike anything else an artist can have as a muse. Jeff Weekley has found the secret of combining line, form, color and shadow to explore the human figure to create these reflective narratives with universal appeal.
Curious but timeless, Weekley’s paintings empower the most vulnerable, young women, to observe the wonder he surrounds them in, to challenge their thoughts and/or to navigate a way ahead. Birds, animals, books, water, storms, etc. are signifiers that Weekley employs to create the enigmatic ideas in his paintings.
The paid young models are the daughters of friends and most recently he has employed his granddaughter. The fresh faces and bare feet create a natural tension between their naivety and the worldly surroundings that is their story in the paintings.
