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 snapshots of an intimate relationship; it’s consummation in question. Concrete in detail and expressive as a whole, Weber renders light and flesh with the sophisticated provocation of the School of London.
