Rachel Mica Weiss (b. 1986 in Rockville, MD) combines textile languages with the density of stone, cast forms, and wood constructions to create sculptures and installations embedded with gravity. Weiss received her B.A. in psychology from Oberlin College and her M.F.A. in sculpture from the San Francisco Art Institute. She is a 2011 recipient of the San Francisco Foundation Murphy and Cadogan Fellowship in the Fine Arts and has been a resident at Vermont Studio Center (2012) and Village des Arts, Dakar, Senegal (2006). Solo exhibitions include 'In Place' at Fridman Gallery (2014) and 'Engulfing the Elusory' at the San Francisco Arts Commission (2013). Weiss has exhibited at venues such as Storefront Ten Eyck, SOMArts Cultural Center, and the Fiber Philadelphia Biennial. Press includes The San Francisco Chronicle, the Bad at Sports blog, and El Grito magazine (Peru). She currently lives and works in Brooklyn as a resident of the chashama Studio Program.
