Idelle Weber
- Additional Information -

For Idelle Weber, art is the process of "seeing and recording and experiencing."  She chooses fragmentary views to understand the structure of a subject.  Square canvases wahsed with color become luminous backgrounds for the lyrical structure of a tree.

The new "drawn paintings" reveal her trademark "exuberance under control."  Weber's sparks of brilliant color amid density suggest movement.  In the apparent chaos of black marks and expressive line, we feel the shimmer of a summer day in Rhinebeck.
