Weir is best known for fusing imagery of ceramic figurines with his archive of landscapes to create complex narratives with exquisite yet melancholic auras.
He has said both his paintings and sculptures "formulate visual ideas where words or language may fail, or seem insufficient",.
By using fragments of pre-existing imagery to make his oil paintings. He draws on a specific tradition of 18th and 19th century decorative art like the ceramic figurine as well as more culturally loaded objects..
