Thea Weiss: Creative Responses To The Holocaust

post-image
Thea is a studio-based printmaker and painter. Her printing methods concentrate on etchings, both on zinc and caustic soda on linoleum. Her paintings utilise encaustic and oils on wafer board. The inspiration for the majority of Thea's work has focussed on her memories, those of her American mother and her Czech born mother-in-law's experiences in the Holocaust. Her work utilises words and numbers, which have been relayed to Thea, both orally and in writing. Letters are stamped onto canvas, etching plates or wooden boards to replicate the stories told and the images interpreted. https://www.theaweiss.com.au/
