Nick Weber: Paintings of Helga

Exhibition Dates: June 25th to July 18th 2011

John McWhinnie @ Glenn Horowitz Bookseller is pleased to announce a new exhibition of figurative oil paintings by Nick Weber entitled Paintings of Helga. Blending realism and romance, Weber presents sensually worked canvases of a single subject. The constructed studio situation holds the psychological tension, uncertainty, and libidinal excitement of a first encounter . Exposing the sexually charged space between artist and muse, Weber captures moments of quiet discomfort, often fixating on the subtle subconscious gestures of coy hands and crossed legs. The paintings read as Degas-like...

Josephine Meckseper.

Exhibition Dates: September 15 - October 10, 2009

Recurrent images of political activism—whether photographs of demonstrations or newspaper cuttings—are set against sparkling consumer goods and advertising motifs. Rather than aestheticizing, and thus glorifying, the seductive power of these themes, Meckseper...
