“My work comes from thoughts about people and places; about permanence and impermanence; about notions of home and belonging. I’m fascinated by people’s relationship with places and time, and in particular the way things we regard as solid and permanent are actually temporary, in flux, and part of a continuum much larger than ourselves.
Much of my recent work has featured images of boats and houses that perhaps reflect on life’s transitions, arrivals, and moorings. Whilst being carefully composed and structured, there’s also a sense of mystery and ambiguity to the paintings that I hope encourages the viewer to find their own individual resonances and narratives within them.”
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Born in England but now residing in Oakland, Webb works with mixed materials including repurposed wood, concrete, found metal, paper, and pigments to create paintings, prints, sculptural objects, murals, public and commissioned art. His public art projects include a twelve hundred feet long mural in Hayward; a colorful wall of reclaimed wood at MacArthur Station in Oakland; and an interactive installation at the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento. Webb also has work in the permanent art collection at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and several civic collections.
