Rampart Studios Gallery (2520 Sunset Blvd.) in L.A. will display Weinberg’s collection of oil paintings on July 7 (for the first time since he began this body of work eight years ago).
Weinberg said, “A Hollow Realm’ is a body of work that contains 14 paintings I’ve made over the last eight years. Whether set within the beauty of the natural world, or in complete darkness, each painting’s subject tells a part of a personal narrative that explores themes of connection and isolation. The visceral emotions of vulnerability, comfort, lust, and anxiety. Love found and love lost. Others explore the mysterious connection to nature I’ve felt since an early age, wandering amongst the trees and streams in the backwoods of rural New Jersey.
Weinberg added, “Each piece took between 30 and 100 hours to complete and serves as a touchstone of this methodical practice in understanding and moving beyond the emotional turning points of my life that have led me to where I am today.”
Weinberg replaced late drummer Joey Jordison in 2013. Prior to joining Slipknot, Jay played in Against Me! from November 2010 until December 2012.
