Ricky Weaver

Ricky Weaver is an Image-based artist, educator, and mother from Ypsilanti, MI. She received her BFA from Eastern Michigan University and her MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art. She currently serves as Lecturer at University of Michigan Residential College Photography Department.  Weaver has shown work at Page Bond Gallery, Photographic Center Northwest, The 2013 Havana Biennale and more. Weavers practice prioritizes the ways in which image ontology materializes within a spatiotemporal collapse. Her application of scripture, hymn, and colloquial passages activates a portal through black semiotics to worlds that don’t require escape. She addresses the sonic, linguistic, and visual as a way to posture the body as a central mechanism for storing, downloading and transferring archives.
