“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 his young and vulnerable subjects to observe the wonder that encompasses them, and challenges their thoughts for a way to navigate forward. Birds and animals, books, water and storms, etc. are iconic imagery that he 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 naivete’ and the worldly surroundings that is their story in Weekley’s paintings.
